So many encounters with the platypus that I did wonder at first if you had one in your back pack to float out at each pond/stream. But seriously, have never seen them so easy to spot before.A small finger of the lake is at one end and is quite shallow meaning a platypus here is easily seen even when under water.

It swam to the far side then disappeared.I waited a few minutes then walked around that far side which was the path leading back to the tea rooms.I stopped to take a photo and the platypus reappeared literally at my feet.it did a couple of rolls before swimming off.
