Australia Day – The Platypus Story

On January the 26th Australia celebrates “Australia Day”  which is pretty much Captain James Cook and his crew coming to Australia and settling in Australia (and also started the settlers to wipe out the Indigenous people of Australia…but that is for another day). So I present on this Magical Monday a story of significance to my country. The indigenous people of Australia call their “stories” the ‘Dream-time’ and I thought since the Platypus is such a bizarre creature and a lot of people find it fascinating…I thought that I would present this story to you all…Enjoy!
