One special attraction of Beauty Point is the guaranteed sightings of seadragons, seahorses, platypuses and echidnas.

The Farm gives you an exclusive view of Australia’s only working seahorse farm, where you can see thousands of them in all stages of life.
Platypus House gives you a close-up view of Tasmanian platypuses and echidnas in their natural environment.
Once you’ve finished exploring the unique wildlife, you may like to tour the 20 local, family-owned vineyards.
There’s plenty to explore in the surrounding area of Beauty Point, such as walking and hiking tracks, mountain biking, fly fishing, and golfing. Launceston is only a 45-minute drive.
So, whether you’re a local or visiting, you can now tune in to 87.6 FM and be blessed by God’s Word being spread through Vision Radio and the supporters who made it possible. It might just change your life!

The cost of establishing a new transmission site depends on the output power and unique site requirements.
Low power licences (ideal in a small country town, for example) typically cost less than $10,000 to establish. This includes the satellite receiving and FM retransmission equipment, the cost of the licence itself, basic local marketing, and program supply via satellite for the first year.
High-power licences and transmission sites are more expensive (but they do have much greater reach).
