Aquascene - Review
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!

Aquascene, Darwin Reviews
Feeding the fish is great fun. Make sure you hold the bread right under the water. The fish will come up and gently take it out of your hand. If you look closely you will see many fish species including queen fish, stingrays, barramundi and much more We stayed for 2 hours and fed the fish. We had a great time. Highly recommended
It was cool to see the fish feeding and be able to get up and close. Unfortunately it was a bit over priced for what it is. Maybe it is better on a higher tide?
Our family came here to feed fish from the open waters and it was a really fun experience. My two year old had a blast throwing bread pieces to the fishes in the water and there were a lot of them.
This is a great attraction👍 . Needs a bit of work on the concrete to the side to keep it safe . And something I should have asked is how many people have been spiked by the catfish 😂😂. Failing that just do it . TIP. Tide times are important.
Great experience! A must for anyone visiting Darwin, easy to get to by car or foot. The day we went there was around 5 different types of fish, apparently they can vary. Plenty of bread left out to feed them, by hand if you wish. A guide was on duty for the whole time we were there using her experience to entice some of the more shy fish out into the open. Take note of feeding times as it is tide dependant.
