  • A fabulous place. Staff where very helpful with my disabled wife. Must see place when you are looking around Tasmania
  • Unless you intend to go on the 'tour' ($22 per adult / $55 family) it's really not worth stopping. There's nothing on display, and the gift shop is just full of the same souvenirs you'll see everywhere else. If the weather is nice, the stop is good for a picnic.
  • Just did the tour, Jessie was an excellent guide, knowledgeable and entertaining. Highly recommend doing the tour with him. The lost stars are due to the other worker (guy who would have been in his 50s) snapping and getting angry that I looked in his direction while in the gift shop. My apologies if you only speak to older people (which you were) and you find families and people in their 40s beneath you.
  • A fantastic opportunity to get up close with platypus and also Echidna. Well worth the fee.
  • Unfortunately it was a bit disappointing, the tanks are very plain and only have plastic plants and tank floors are just white plastic. The presentation is very disappointing and they have not even attempted to create the natural habitat for the sea horses. The sea horses are incredibly beautiful though. Pricing of entry is also quite expensive for what you get.
