Platypus

Platypus may inhabit a number of creeks and river areas within the Rockhampton Region. They make their home in and near freshwater creeks, slow-moving rivers, lakes joined by rivers, and built water storages such as farm dams.

Please don't disturb platypus if they live in streams on your property or in your neighbourhood.
