Tour Information


This tour operates during the summer months only ( October until the end of April) 

Leaving from Cradle Country Adventures’ home base at Kimberley we take you in our inflatable boats to spot wild Tasmanian Platypus in the beautiful Mersey River.

Share with us this unique experience of discovering this completely amazing egg laying mammal in its natural habitat.
This is a unique opportunity to see Platypus in the wild.

Your tour commences on private property and the river meanders through farming and forest country many burrows along this stretch of river and the platypuses have many burrows in the banks of the river. You will get to observe them as they feed and lay in the river shallows.

We believe there is nowhere on the planet where you will see more of these unique animals at home.

This is a unique experience that you will remember forever!

This location disproves the theory that these wonderful creatures can only be seen at dawn and dusk!
We reserve the rights to cancel tours if the river water levels are too high. A full refund will then be offered.
