"Home of the platypus" Eungella National Park by Andraf
Eungella National Park Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 36 photos
The little fellow in the picture above is the reason for my 3 hours round trip from Macay to Eungella National Park. A special animal, bizarre looking and very important in the study of evolutionary biology. The platypus is a monotreme, a mammal that lays eggs instead of giving birth to youngs. When I was planning the trip to Australia I decided that I would really like to see one and some searches on the internet revealed Eungella to be the best spot to spot a platypus. Or, as I read in the East Coast Australia LP guide "Most days of the year you can be pretty sure of seeing a platypus or two in the Broken River". Well, in my case they got that right. After waiting for about 20 minutes I got to see not one but two of them.
