Millsom the Platypus is a well known Australian icon and his world has been a mysterious one – until NOW.
A brand new show, Tales from Platypus Creek, will reveal Millsom's magical underwater world to Sanctuary visitors in a new “hands on” presentation. The show will be open to visitors on 10 January 2013.
For a chance to win a behind-the-scenes experience to meet Millsom for you and your family (maximum 2 adults and 2 children), simply colour in the stars of the show, Tales from Platypus Creek and drop your entry into Healesville Sanctuary's retail shop by Thursday 31 January.
This competition is open to children up to 12 years of age. Please make sure you write your name, age, address and phone number on the back of the colouring-in form.
We'll notify the winner in the first week in February.
Together we can improve animal care, reduce threatening processes and save endangered species.
Experts are concerned Platypus populations are declining through habitat destruction, and from litter and detergent phosphates making their way into rivers. You can help us fight extinction by adopting the Platypus.
