    Beauty Point Seahorse Farm

    Seahorse World Brochure

    This place is a world first, one of my top ‘must sees’ for Tasmania. Viewing is by tour only (no cameras allowed).
    You get to see thousands upon thousands of seahorses in various stages of development - from minute 1 cm strands of only a few days old, to half grown.
    There are 35 different species of Seahorse worldwide, with 15 found in Australia. They can grow up to 30 cms in length.
    We saw several different kinds. My favourite ones were the highly attractive weedy sea dragon and the Barbour’s seahorses (the latter are from the Phillipines). Barbour’s seahorses over several months can change colour to adapt to their surroundings - I saw bright red ones, orange, and yellow, all in the same tank.

    Near the suspension bridge, there was this huge rocks that were piled up very tall. We could even hide ourselves underneath it.

    You can take the walking trails, fishing, abseiling, rock climbing and do whitewater rafting all at the Cataract Gorge.

    Street of  Launceston

    After dinner, we took a short walk around the hotel.

    The street of Launceston town is a very quiet and peaceful one.

    There were hardly anyone around on the streets.

    Near verticle cliffs crowd the bank of south esk river as it enters the Tamar and the area around the gorge is a wildlife reserve. There are two walking tracks where you can go into the gorge.

    Alexandra Suspension Bridge

    I did not spend much time in Launceston, so I cannot tell much about this town. I didn't found the town that special, but the Alexandra Suspension Bridge is 'a thing to do'.

    Beauty Point Docks

    Beauty Point docks

    I see why they call this place Beauty Point.

    It's rather nice to see the docks area with the mountains in the distant background, especially if the sun is shining.
