Broken River Mountain 

Tear yourself away from the coast for this very special place, one of the best in the world to see the elusive platypus in the wild. It is 90 kilometres west of Mackay and 5 kilometres from Eungella. Despite its apparent simplicity, this eco-resort has a good chef and wine cellar, and the kind of beauty only nature can provide. Early mornings are filled with birdsong, and the wildlife is spectacular day and night thanks to the surrounding 50 000-hectare Eungella National Park. There is a range of guided and self-guide activities, from bushwalking to canoeing. Just leave time to watch for those platypus feeding at sunset. There are kitchen facilities in all accommodation, which ranges from motel style to one- and two-bedroom lodges.
