Such an incredible rip off for the price. $42 for a family of 4 to throw stale bread to a couple of fish, and signs around the place which advertise the sale of camera film (in 2015) should give you the idea that this is...More

Unfortunately this business needs an injection of new ideas, organised displays and a general tidy up. It could do with a young front counter person to allow the tours to be conducted uninterrupted. A bit disappointing considering where it is and the potential of what...More

Such a simple activity but still fun and interesting seeing the volume and variety of fish. Hordes of people meant far too much bread being fed. Sound system not working properly so only caught part of commentary. Sculptures were wonderful to look at. Bit expensive...More

It is very much a 'you had to be there ' type of experience. I went with 2 children (10 & 12 yrs).. All of us were interested for the 90mins we spent there. It is amazing to watch the different species of fish come...More

Wild fish swim to a small jetty and you are gven some bread to throw in the water. You pay a hefty entry fee. No other attractions or information, just a two hundred fish

Awesome spot for kids to hand feed fish, this was our 2nd time here we visited in 2012 as well . Only disappointing part is the lady who obviously runs the place and has absolutely no customer service skills. I personally witnessed her publicly dress...More
