The Platypus Bush Camp, Eungella National Park

Tiered of the East Coast party scene and cookie cutter backpacker route, it was really nice to escape into the mountains and spend some time at the Platypus Bush Camp. It’s exactly what it sounds like. It’s in the bush, has a glorified BBQ for a kitchen, an open air sitting area, and the clearest river I’ve ever seen – perfect platypus habitat.

I did a great hike to a waterfall and swimming pool with two girls I met up there – Norah and Ruth. The water was very cold, but it was nice after a hot hike through the forest.

Perfect for a refreshing dip! SO COLD!

I didn’t actually get to see any platypus, but it’s my own fault because I wouldn’t sit still long enough. C’est la vie!
