The Platypus Experience is located in Latrobe on Tasmania’s beautiful northwest coast. It’s difficult to keep this unique mammal out of its natural environment. However the Experience provides comprehensive dioramas, videos and models with a unique water feature which displays how the platypus live, eat and breed in their secret world. It is truly an educational experience for the young and old.
While experiencing this unique display you can also marvel at the unbelievable collection of trophies, treasures and memorabilia, recognizing Tasmania’s world champion axeman.
You can also view the live rainbow and brown trout plus other fish that live in Tasmania’s rivers and lakes making it an exciting destination for the angler.
