Platypus House

Zoo in Beauty Point

Housed in a huge wharf shed, Platypus House puts the world’s only two monotremes – the platypus and the echidna – on display for your viewing pleasure. Platypuses gambol in glass-sided tanks and transparent ‘burrows’, while in the echidna room you can walk among the trundling creatures as guides dish out scientific facts. Guided tours depart on the hour.
