The Platypus trail crosses through a riparian zone of Hilliards Creek, and features a flat creek terrace, bridge crossing and short climb. Stop at the creek to take in the view of trickling water, ferns and overhanging paperbark trees. There are two A lines for a more direct route down to the creek crossing.
