The Riverlet Lachlan runs heavy in winter from the runoff the surrounding mountains. At this point the water converges between these boulders if it doesn't simply wash over the top before scooting on down the river bed towards the Derwent River fifteen kilometres away. The rocks here are slippery and the water is cold yet it is more than worthwhile to spend three or four hours in this beautiful place where the possibility of the resident platypus popping up alongside you is real. Once the odd little creature sees you it doesn't stick around though. I needed to return a second time to understand the water flow across the top of the rocks and on that second occasion the platypus made his appearance and is promptly included in the painting.
