On the way back to the car we picked up a leaflet in the visitor centre for Something Wild Wildlife Sanctuary which was about 5 minutes back along the road. So we decided to stop there,as they had wild platypus' and i really wanted to see one. The Sanctuary was really good. They run a Tasmanian Devil Breeding programme, so there were three baby devils and three adults. They were all adorable.
We also managed to spot one of the wild Platypus. There is a section of river in the back of the park with a pool, which they live in, and is their natural habitat. Unfortunately the viewing platform is set back and high up so you can't see them very close-up.
There were also Possums, Roos, Quolls, wombats, Koalas and birds. So although the sanctuary was quite small, we spend a good couple of hours looking at the animals.
