  • Access to the popular touchpool may be restricted during certain stages of lockdown restrictions. Also due to social distancing rules, some elements of the guided tour will be self-guided but a guide will be conducting critical components of the experience in the farm area.

Seahorse World is a wholly owned Tasmanian seahorse breeding farm and tourist attraction situated in picturesque Beauty Point on the West Tamar about 45 minutes from Launceston.

Having grown out of work done at the Launceston campus of the University of Tasmania when it was the National Key Centre for Aquaculture, we have now been operating for over 20 years.

Visitors will see the farming of the Tasmanian Potbelly seahorse from thousands of tiny babies to the much larger breeders and get up nice and close to them in a behind-the-scenes encounter unlike any other aquarium experience in Australia.
Our boutique Southern Ocean aquarium holds some very interesting local sea creatures. A great fun learning activity for all Tasmanians.
