Early morning or late afternoon from both the eastern and the western side of the bridge, you may be lucky enough to view the platypus swimming or feeding in their natural environment. There are also fish, water fowl and ducks to be seen.
There are walks down to the river bank where you can have a closer look at the magnificant platypus sculpture. Following a short and well trodden, but rough track that brings you out at the weir.
Small and medium sized vehicle access to a viewing platform by the river is through River Street's Webb Park ramp. The turning circle at the river's edge is not large enough for vans, trucks and RV's.
A brochure for the riverbank walk is available at the Casino Visitor Information Centre, 84 Centre Street, Casino.
