Eungella, Mackay Area
Visit Broken River in Eungella National Park for one of the best spots in Australia to see a platypus in its natural environment. The platypus is most active during dusk and dawn or cloudy and overcast days, from the viewing platform or under the traffic bridge.
Be sure to call into the Information Centre at Broken River for more information about the platypus and National Park. Four of the nine walking trails can be accessed from Broken River and they all differ in difficulty and distance to suit all abilities.
National park camping is available at Fern Flat opposite Broken River. Camping permits are required prior to arrival and can be made online or call.
