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 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

Great time sharing with Launceston Central Rotary clubThis week's Rotary Club of Central Launceston meeting was Rotary's version of a Sir David Attenborough nature lesson and we absolutely loved it!

Craig Hawkins from Seahorse World was our Guest Speaker and he gave us some amazing insights into seahorses.

Did you know male seahorses actually have the babies? Yes they do!

And the lady seahorses are wild about the male pot-bellied seahorses! Respect the pot belly people!!

Seahorse World has won silver in the Tasmanian Tourism Awards in 2016 and 2017 and Craig gave us an incredible insight into how he and his wife have developed the business over the past 16 years.

Seahorse World is now the first private company worldwide to breed the spotted handfish, which is a high value species.
This is significant as there are only 1000 of these fish remaining.

Seahorse World is breeding five species of seahorse in 2018 as well as peppermint shrimp and clownfish.

Thanks Craig for a fabulous talk, we loved having you at our meeting.

Rotarian Phil Sykes took this terrific photo of RCCL Chairman Malcolm Waterston (pictured left) and Craig Hawkins.
