Enter the world of the cryptic Platypus in this awe-inspiring encounter.
Strap on waders and follow a Platypus expert into the Sanctuary’s World of Platypus and immerse yourself in their habitat.
As your eyes adjust to the dim-lit setting, ideal for this mostly nocturnal animal, feel the cool temperature of the environment, and hear the water stream trickle in the distance.
Although unfamiliar for many people, this is a world where Platypus senses thrive.
You will work with a Platypus expert to offer a sprinkle of food in the water to see if the Platypus chooses to forage and explore around you.
This awe-inspiring experience allows time to discover all about this incredible native species by observing its natural behaviours. Learn more from the specialists who care for the cryptic monotreme and the work being done to protect the species across Victoria.
Note: The Platypus has complete choice and control at all times during this experience.
