The Story of Platypus | Author: David M. Welch

In Aboriginal stories from eastern and south-eastern Australia, the Platypus began as the child of Duck and Water Rat. The story of platypus is based on the legend of Gayardaree, the platypus told to Katherine Field in the 1800s.

Illustrations in the book represent the mountains of the Great Dividing Range in eastern Australia, The Grampians in western Victoria, and the mountains of Tasmania.
