Broger's End Kangaroo Valley

With a status of near threatened and with their population in decline, Broger's End is very proud to be home to a population of platypus.

In October 2019 we had the pleasure of hosting 50 school children through the Illawarra Environmental Education Centre and researchers from the University of New South Wales involved in “Project Platypus“.

This lovely adult female featured in the video below was found just a little downstream from our favourite swimming spot in the river, and with a few scars on her tail (most likely from mating) was tagged and released back into her home. How lucky are we to have our own resident platypus?!
