Most sightings of platypus and rakali in Queanbeyan occur between Dane Street and the CBD, although there have been several reports outside those boundaries. Time of day for spotting varies throughout the year, but it is generally early morning or just before dusk. The suspension bridge off of Isabella Street is an ideal location to spot platypus during breeding season, anywhere from June to October.
