An evening platypus spotting

How to spot a platypus and other interesting facts

The Manning Great Lakes Platypus Awareness and Conservation Team – PACT, together with Great Lakes Council and MidCoast Water, invite you to learn more about one of Australia’s most elusive and iconic native animals.
Join us in April to see if we can spot a platypus in it’s natural habitat on the Karuah River.

You’ll need to bring; warm clothes, binoculars, a chair or picnic rug, a torch for finding your way back to your car, your questions and some patience! Did you know that a group of platypus is called a puddle?

Light refreshments will be provided. The event will be cancelled in poor weather. Platypus are known to live at this location, however we can not guarantee sightings.
