While places advertise wildlife sightings, not all of them live up to the expectation. Eungella National Park, west of Mackay in North Queensland, did not disappoint. Sightings of the platpus in the late afternoon and early morning were guaranteed. In fact for the more patient watcher there were several platypus going about their daily routines at any one time. What a treat and what is more, no difficult tracks and trails to get there!
