Hold the mysteries of the ocean in the palm of your hand.

All around the world, crowds gather to admire our seahorses in our famous aquariums.  But you can get much closer to these mysterious creatures at our completely unique facility at Beauty Point, in Tasmania’s beautiful Tamar Valley, just 45 minutes from Launceston or Devonport.

Our working seahorse farm gives you unique access to these magical creatures. An educational tour will lead you through The Cave of the Seahorse, working Seahorse Farm and the Wonders of the Southern Ocean Aquarium, ending with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hold a beautiful seahorse in the palm of your hand!

This is social media after all, so we are sure you will be happy sharing this milestone in our lives. 6 children later we have been so blessed since moving to Tasmania from NSW shortly after being married. #tamarvalley ...

Things for families to do in Launceston and the Tamar Valley.

There are plenty of things to do for families visiting Launceston if you take a drive up the Tamar Valley. Come and see our latest giant cuttlefish on your tour of Seahorse World. You can also visit our good friends at Platypus House next door and nearby Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre which is a hands-on museum great for the kids.

Other things nearby that are great for families include some fun at Greens Beach - very safe beach for kids, and a look at West Head lookout while you are there (15 minutes from us). Also Glengarry Bush Maze; Notley Hills Tree Fern walk; Tamar Valley Resort putt putt golf, paddle kickers and giant jumping pillow. Don't miss Brady's lookout on the West Tamar Highway just south of Exeter or take very exciting walk across the Batman Bridge (keep hold of your childs hand!).
Some other lesser known gems are the short walk to the ruins of the Supply River mill (on the river edge near Exeter) or the walk to the convict ruins at Mount Direction.
