Cuddled a koala? Fed a kangaroo? Held a baby crocodile?
These are all common wildlife experiences that many visitors to Australia are keen to tick off their bucket-lists, but have you tried finding a platypus in the wild? Platypus are only found in Australia and only inhabit a small proportion of the country. Broken River, a tranquil rainforest environment in Eungella National Park, is considered to be the best place in the world for seeing wild platypus in their natural environment.
