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 a great initiative restoring some suitable habitat for endangered seahorse species using artificial structures. We here at Seahorse World are captive breeding this species attempting to "do our bit" for the conservation of these amazing creatures. We also educate our visitors on this and many other endangered species and creatures under threat.

This is a beautiful shot of one of our potbelly seahorses by one of our guests: Elodie! It really shows off the cirri, or 'hair-do' of the seahorse. It isn't hair of course but it seems that the seahorses can grow and lose it, probably an important feature for camouflage down in amongst the seagrassThanks for the tour! 😁 ... See MoreSee Less
