Early morning or late afternoon from both the eastern and the western side of the bridge, you may be lucky enough to view the platypus swimming or feeding in their natural environment. There are also fish, water fowl and ducks to be seen.

There are walks down to the river bank where you can have a closer look at the magnificant platypus sculpture. Following a short and well trodden, but rough track that brings you out at the weir.
