Making a Home in Skipton

Skipton just 50km west of the goldfields capital of Ballarat is fast gaining a reputation as the 'home of the platypus.' If you are yet to encounter this unique egg-laying mammal a walk in Stewart Park is a must.

Sit quietly along the banks of Mount Emu Creek, particularly around dusk and dawn for your best chance of spotting this unique Australian animal. 

Enjoy the hospitality and tastes of a classic Australian country town and base yourself to explore goldfields towns and discover features of the 3rd largest volcanic plain on the planet.
