This is where you can escape from the tropical heat and be only metres from the best place in the world to view a platypus in the wild, offers The Ultimate Rain-forest Alfresco Dining Experience.

When they think about good food, it's about quality and value. After working in some of Switzerland, Austria and Australia's best food establishments, the chef is making sure high quality standards are applied to the preparation, cooking and presentation of their meals, which is the key to their success.

Although this kind of dining is unique in Australia, they offer a different experience at Eungella National Park - Broken River section, not only can you see the platypus in the wild, walk on the new board walks, you alfresco-dine in the cool fantastic rainforest surroundings and with the fresh prepared food and service they certainly stand out from the rest. 

Lovers of good coffee and food, love Platypus Lodge Restaurant and Cafe.
