Ever wanted to see a platypus in the wild? Join platypus expert Dr Tom Grant for an evening on the Barrington River this Friday 5 September learning how to spot this elusive creature!

Spotting will be followed by light refreshments and a short talk and is suitable for any child or adult who can sit quietly!  Meet at the end of Relfs Road, Gloucester at 5 pm for 5:15 start with an estimated finish time is 6:30 pm. Bring warm clothes, binoculars, a chair or picnic rug, a torch for finding your way back to your car, your questions and some patience!
