" Great location, the river indeed has a platypus. Fireplace and beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. Good heating and isolation. Overall great place to stay. Seeing platypus requires great patience, better to stay on river bank after dark directly in front of the Kitchen and look at the place where the water flow is slower, just near the river bank. This is where the platypus will swim up the stream and will usually surface for a few seconds as the water level there is shallow, allowing you to take some quick photos from only 1.5 meters distance."

“Cute, little converted cottage right on the river. Nice fireplace with good, dry wood and comfy beds! Great place to stay at the gateway to Mt Field National Park. Prompt, responsive host, with a caretaker nearby - would definitely recommend!”

Just wanted to tell you how great our stay was when we visited you 2 weeks ago.
Seeing a platypus in its natural environment was fantastic, I had only seen one at Healsville Sanctuary in Victoria.
Your place was a delight.
Thanks for having the fire burning on our arrival.
We are down to 9 degrees at Penshurst, so we had a nice "warm" holiday in Tasmania.
And thanks for having the free vouchers for Salmon Ponds, that place was fantastic, such a unique place.
Thanks again.
