Platypus Ponderings

Lunch and cocktails by the river while learning about the elusive platypus

Learn about local platypus populations while enjoying Saturday afternoon lunch and cocktails, kids welcome!

Have you every pondered about platypus populations in your local area? What do they eat? Where do they live? Do they really lay eggs and have venomous spurs? How can I see them?

PlatypusWatch will be at the White House of Waterford on Saturday January 18th 4.00pm – 6.00pm to teach you everything you want to know about the mysterious platypus. Our PlatypusWatch coordinator is an expert in her field and has been monitoring local platypus populations for over 10 years. We have recently expanded our PlatypusWatch program into the Logan area and we’re excited to tell you all about our upcoming surveys in March 2020.Make an afternoon of it, have a late lunch before grabbing a refreshing cocktail and meandering down to the Bali Hut for 4.00pm where you can learn all about your local platypus population, report your own sightings and register your interest in attending our surveys all across the Gold Coast and now Logan too!

We will also have activities for the kiddies so feel free to bring them along to enjoy a lovely afternoon by the river, learning about platypus.
