Platypus House offers the opportunity to view live platypuses and echidnas at Beauty Point, Tasmania. Be amazed by these unique animals in daylight conditions and in an indoor setting.

Tasmanian platypuses and echidnas are unique and cannot be seen anywhere else in the world. You are guaranteed to see both these spectacular egg-laying mammals actively feeding and playing during the guided tour. Learn and be amazed about the biology of both mammals and how they live. Have fun choosing a memento from the gift shop . Japanese and Chinese language information sheets are available.

Platypus House has been established to advance community understanding and awareness of these unique animals.

Platypus House sits on the western banks of the Tamar River at Beauty Point, about a 40-minute drive north of Launceston (44 km).
