Platypus festival fun

Samuel and Mason from Berwick learn about water run-off.

The annual Platypus Festival celebrated the reclusive monotreme at Belgrave Lake Park.

Southern Dandenongs Landcare partnered with Yarra Ranges Council to deliver the family event on Sunday 9 September.

The aim was to celebrate the platypus that lived in Monbulk Creek and educate the community about ways to protect them.

The day included live music, a sausage sizzle, tree planning, and education stalls.
