Aquascene is as fishy an experience as it can get! Since the early 1950s, a natural phenomena occurs on the high tide of Darwin’s Doctors Gully when the local and wild fishes swim to the shallow shoreline searching for food!

Aquascene celebrates these fishes- caring for them by feeding them every day! Join the feeding sessions to see the fishes in all their glory. A humble experience nevertheless!

  • A different activity. Great way to learn about fish and tides around Darwin. Very exposed, wear sun protection. Check website for opening times.

  • Had a great time with the family. I recommend early over late feeding sessions, but remember its all tidal dependant on when its open. Staff were pleasant to deal with, although I can see why some would say that they come off as rude. There is only so many times you can tell people the rules, feeding zones and the dangers of the water before sounding harsh. Cost was a bit steep for a family of four

  • Not sure it’s worth the entry fee. Went in with my 13 year old, probably a bit too babyish for us. Can see a few toddlers having a good time though. It’s only fish feeding.

  • Great host. Great sunset view. Saw lots of stingrays. got nice shots of the fish swimming near my feet. Lots of space. Saw maybe 8 different kinds of fish.

  • This is so fun. Lovely statues and a wealth of fish, lovely staff. The highlight of our trip for me, love those cute fishes swimming around my feet and nibbling my fingers. Felt nice to be on the giving end to the sea.
