All around the world, crowds gather to admire our seahorses in famous aquariums. But you can be get much closer to these mysterious creatures at our completely unique facility at Beauty Point, in the beautiful Tamar Valley, less than a one-hour drive from Launceston or Devonport.
Your 45-minute tour commences in “The Cave” which is home to a selection of seahorses and sea dragons. Here you will learn a bit about seahorses and their mysterious behaviour.
We then move into “The Farm” which is where you get an exclusive ‘behind the scenes’ look at Australia’s only working seahorse farm. This is where we feed the fish and you can see seahorses in all stages of life from tiny fingernail size babies to larger adults going about their day.
Our final room is “The Southern Ocean Aquarium” where we showcase some of the bizarre and mystical creatures found in Tasmanian waters. In this room you’ll also have the opportunity to get hands on and touch some of the creatures from the deep as well as hold a seahorse in the palm of your hand. Get your cameras ready!
