Useful tips:

The platypus is most active around sunrise & sunset. They are shy creatures, so stay as quiet as possible so you don't scare them. Watch for a trail of bubbles which is a sign of the platypus searching for food; follow the trail of bubbles for an indication of where the platypus will surface.
