Hello. Would it be relevant/appropriate to add in that an eco-tours company is based here which operates tours to see platypuses in addition to the local flora and fauna? I've been on the tour and it's excellent - a great way to enlighten visitors and encourage tourism, without damaging the environment. I have a citation source from an official site and they also have their own website. Aussiewriter (talk) 19:29, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

It depends largely on what your source is, if it is tourism promotion site, probably not. Added information needs to be sourced from reliable independent third party sources.--Melburnian (talk) 06:39, 30 June 2009 (UTC) =. Melburnian (talk) 06:39, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
the source is the official government site for the region - is that not acceptable?Aussiewriter (talk) 21:25, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
I think it's more relevant to the article Great Otway National Park; a mention could be made about Lake Elizabeth and platypuses and that canoe tours are conducted there, but , in my opinion, the company name should not be mentioned. Melburnian (talk) 03:08, 1 July 2009 (UTC)


A picture of a platypus might be appropriate then? Aussiewriter (talk) 19:31, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
I don't think so, unless it was actually taken in Forrest, otherwise it could be a bit misleading. --06:39, 30 June 2009 (UTC)Melburnian (talk)
I'm sorry, I should have clarified - a picture of a platypus from one of the tours provided by the company that runs the tours.Aussiewriter (talk) 21:25, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
The article it could be used for may depend on where it was taken, but generally speaking we have very few pictures of platypuses in the wild [1], and a good picture uploaded to Wikimedia Commons has a good chance of being used in an article somewhere. Melburnian (talk) 03:08, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
