Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely home away from home We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Platypus Falls. The house was spacious and very comfortable with lots of extras included to make our stay easier and more comfortable. We have a toddler and the house was wonderfully equipped for small children, with a highchair, plastic children's crockery and a wonderful variety of children's toys to keep our little one entertained. The large yard was also a great extra feature that gave us a lot of space to enjoy our holiday. We would definitely stay here again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing Retreat We have been going to the Tablelands for years as a family for Christmas. This was our first year at Platypus Falls and our stay was most enjoyable. Its a great location quiet and very relaxing. We had extended family stay with us for one night, there was heaps of space for everyone to chill and wind down. The property is well equipped - a home away from home. Would certainly love to make this our annual retreat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well appointed residence and perfectly set up We booked this house as a base for a weekend event. It was perfect. The house was lovely and obviously run by generous hosts. It is centrally located making it convenient to Yungaburra and the lakes. They are well set up for children and the yard is fully fenced making it a secure place for furry guests as well. The photos on the site reflect the state of the house, it is a clean well presented residence. Thank you to our hosts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6 out of 5 stars! Fantastic property! Perfect for small or large getaways as it's well equipped for adults and children, The owners have thought of everything. It's a home away from home, you feel completely relaxed the minute you walk in the door. We won't stay anywhere else when we travel to the Tablelands!
