Bus and Walk

See platypus in their natural habitat.

It is possible to see platypus at any time of the day, but our best chance is just after dawn.

We pick you up from your Byron Bay accommodation and drive to the special platypus area. From there we start our 2 km easy walk along the creek looking for platypus.

Your guide will lead you at a gentle pace, showing you what to look for and sharing insights about this much-loved and quirky Australian animal.

We usually see one or two platypus, and loads of birds. After watching the platypus have their breakfast we relax with ours – a picnic by the creek – before returning to Byron Bay.

We can’t guarantee platypus sightings on this tour, but don’t worry. If we don’t see them we take you on another day, free.

You’ll journey in style and comfort, either in our cozy eight-seater hybrid vehicle or our spacious 12-seater bus, depending on the group size for the tour.

Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements when you book

As with all our our eco tours, we request that you try and wear dark clothing if possible. We don’t draw attention to ourselves, to the wildlife that we are trying to see.

We did the Platypus tour and saw 2 platypuses! Wendy knew exactly where to find them! Wendy is friendly, down to earth, very knowledgeable and has a real passion for wildlife and conservation. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and will be back for more when we next visit Byron Bay! Paul T
