I collect Waterwatch samples from the “Boat Hole” on the Hughes Creek each month and every time I visit I linger to catch a glimpse of the pair of platypus that inhabit that area.
If you are looking for quite picnic spot take your chairs, a book and some refreshments this is a great place. Sit very still on the banks and enjoy the wildlife attracted to this scenic reserve. A camera and binoculars would be useful. Only 2.5 kms from the Ruffy Store. Follow the gravel road from the shop- Turn off Nolans Road down the Boathole Road.

The Platypus forage along the far bank towards Mrs Threlfalls fence, they are nearly always present. Let me know if you see them.
