|We have left the coast and gone inland to a place at the top of a range of small mountains. Thw wholw area is a national park and there is a river where one can see platapus in the wild. John and i were a bit worried that it would be like the cassowary hunting and we would not see them, but after waiting a short while we were lucky enought for one to swim right under the bank from which we were watching. We watched for about 1/2 hour as he swam and dived just in front of us. I have told Kay that 99% of the population of Australia have not seen a platapus in the wild and there will be hardly anyone back in Uk who has seen one.
