Platypus House

Home to Tasmanian Platypuses and Tasmanian Echidnas, Platypus House gives visitors a rare chance to see and learn about both. Established to raise awareness about these Australian critters, Platypus House offers guided, educational tours.

Tasmanian platypuses and echidnas are unique and cannot be seen anywhere else in the world. During your tour at Platypus House, you’ll see the egg-laying mammals eating and playing. The tour begins in the platypus ponds before heading to the echidna garden to see them foraging in a bushland setting. The tour is a little more than 30 minutes in length. Visitors also get admission to a theatrette showing a film on platypuses and are encouraged to visit the interpretation centre.
