When you think of iconic Australian wildlife, the platypus is high on the list. A unique monotreme that is only found in Australia, the platypus has many endearing qualities (and some venomous ones too).
This curious creature has been the collecting passion of Karen Collins for nearly 20 years. Her fun and ever-expanding collection spans souvenirs, homeware, clothing and much more. We hope you'll take some time to meander through this exhibition and be inspired to venture out in our region to spot a platypus in the wild.
