Seahorse World Tours

Located in northern Tasmania, Seahorse World is the world’s first commercial seahorse farm. Fueled by concern over dwindling seahorse populations, it got its start in research work at the University of Tasmania in the 1990s. 

Today, Seahorse World works to conserve seahorses, by reducing numbers taken from the wild with its breeding program. It also offers visitors an educational tour of their aquarium dedicated to the breeding, education and conservation of the seahorse.

Tours, a little less than an hour in length, give visitors a behind-the-scenes view of a working seahorse farm. Along with seahorses, you’ll see an assortment of other colorful marine creatures in the aquarium like sharks, stingrays, spider crabs and giant cuttlefish.

Practical Info

Seahorse World is located north of Launceston, at Beauty Point in the north of Tasmania. Plan for a little less than an hour’s drive. It is open seven days a week, and in December through April, tours depart regularly from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. In May through November, tours depart on the hour, every hour from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
