Warrawee Forest Reserve – “Platypus Capital of the World”

At the end of Shale Road, Latrobe

Right on the banks of the Mersey River, this is the best place in the Latrobe area to see platypus in their natural environment – late afternoon, dusk and first light are ideal visiting times to catch a glimpse. The track along the river offers a serene and magical walking experience, or if you’re up for an adrenaline rush, check out the mountain bike routes throughout the reserve.
