This was a really interesting attraction. For the price of admission, you get bread to feed to the fish as the tide rolls in. My daughter got bored pretty quickly but my husband and I had a blast. It was really cool feeding the fish...More

Kids had a blast feeding all the fish but really overpriced for essentially throwing a few pieces of homebrand bread into the water. $43 for family to enter is a bit greedy

Unlimited bread and the fish kept coming. The commentary went the whole time we where there. Enjoyable experience. I think the price was reasonable. Saw a couple of stingrays, and managed to not get eaten by a fish (just kidding).

Feeding the fish with slices of bread (provided free by the staff) kept our family group entertained for 2 hours (which surprised many of us). It's a low technology activity which surprised us by how enjoyable it was. Well stocked gift shop too.

This is an awesome place for fish lovers. You get to feed the ‘wild’ ocean fish by hand. Most important, check the times for tide before coming. It is near enough from town to walk to this place. You won’t regret coming here. Simply awesome...More

Enjoyed feeding fish and watching how greedy they were. Felt price a bit steep for short time you interact with fish. Unlimited bread was supplied. Friendly staff

An opportunity to feed some seriously large fish. We visited Doctors gully nearly thirty years ago. It was good to see that the area is still protected from fishing and this attraction is still operating.

This is fish going mad with a feed. While a bit tame it is interesting to learn a little bit of Darwin history and watch this fascinating fish feeding

The place is a blend of fish feed in and carved rocks. The fish feeding isn’t cheap at $15 per adult. Good chance to see local fish and crabs up close. A little over priced. All of the carved statues....weird combo.More

Yes - we do have lots of hungry fish :-) As well as some eclectic statues down here including the massive barra at the entrance, some of them reflect the Chinese history of Doctors Gully where Aquascene is - some are just there for fun....More
