Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful stay, can not wait to go again We had a wonderful stay at Platypus Falls over the Christmas period. The property is very well equipped. Lots of space and entertainment for young children. The kitchen has everything you need and more. Beautiful views and a huge secure back yard for our two dogs. Large deck to relax and enjoy the peaceful and quiet surrounds. The hosts are lovely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Room for the whole family We enjoyed a lovely family holiday for 3 nights at Platypus Falls between Christmas and New Year. The property has everything you need to share family time - large dinner table, deck and BBQ, spacious lounge and board games. The location allows easy access to many Tablelands attractions - Lake Eacham, Malanda, Millaa Mills Falls and Yungaburra are all a short drive away. Booking was easy and our hosts were a pleasure to deal with. Would recommend.
