“An interesting and educational couple of hours”
Reviewed 5 October 2011

We visited both Platypus House and Seahorse World (they are located directly opposite each other) recently. I found the visit interesting, informative and worth a visit. They offer a family discount and you can get a discount for visiting Platypus House, Seashorse World and Beaconsfield mine in one day.

If you are waiting for a tour they make great coffee!

“Cute animals”
Reviewed 30 September 2011

Combine it on a triple ticket with seahorse world (next door) and the beaconsfield mining museum. Platypuses and echidnas are great animals but I'd seen lits before. It was however good to see the platypus feeding and to sit on the floor while echidnas pottered about around you.
