Our brother-in-law visited the area and camped with friends a few weeks prior and they reported seeing the platypus again further up-stream, however it eluded us again this trip, despite my efforts of getting up in the freezing cold before sunrise. We were shown some amazing photos taken from the trip a few weeks prior of a Death Adder and also of a Red-bellied Black Snake basking on a log in the water - they were amazing images.
The weather was cool, but the days were really nice and it was great relaxing time with family spent fishing, walking, talking, eating and catching up. We were really pleased to be invited back to this beautiful location on the NSW border.
