Located on the western bank of the beautiful Tamar River, Beauty Point is a quaint little town located less than 1 hour’s drive north of Launceston on the West Tamar Highway. Home to the world-first Seahorse aquarium and Platypus House it was also the first deep water port on the Tamar River, originally created to service Beaconsfield during the early mining days, and is also a major fishing town.

The Australian Maritime College (AMC) has one of its Tasmanian campuses in Beauty Point and teaches courses ranging from seamanship to fisheries management. The AMC also includes residence for around 100 students. Beauty Point is directly opposite George Town (on the other side of the river) and is the starting point for Tasmania’s iconic Three Peaks Race.
