Peaceful weekend away
We loved our weekend stay at platypus camp. The best Hipcamp we’ve stayed at so far. The camping ground was so large, flat and peaceful. Lots of shade available from fruit trees. Mark the host, was awesome and helpful. Didn’t spot the platypus, will be back to see next time!
10/10 wildlife camping experience!
One of the best camping experiences we have ever had! We saw platypus, 4 different species of kingfishers and an abundance of other wildlife across this incredible property. Couldn’t recommend more!
We had the best time out on Mark’s property. It is so s beautiful & peaceful, so much wildlife and nature it’s the perfect escape from town. Mark is super lovely and helpful with advice about surrounding areas and hiking trails. Thank you so so much!
We had an amazing weekend and visit
Me and my partner had a wonderful stay at platypus camp. The area is absolutely phenomenal and beautiful, we had a lot of privacy and felt very welcome thanks to Mark. We would definitely recommend staying there as it was an amazing experience and privilege to stay there.
