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.

Nice place to visit. Feeding is only on high tide so have to check the times Saw lots of different fish to feed and stingrays also crabs and other fish in the little lagoon. How long you stay depends on you, you can hand feed...More

It was fund feeding the fish -- many varieties -- food provided and a great commentary was given explaining the fish and their feeding habits. Not expensive -- worth a visit. Just make sure you check on feeding times -- controlled by the tide.

$15 per adult is way too expensive for what you get. Would not recommend, was only there for 15 min.

This is a great area and to see the fish come up for a feed from the wild is quite beautiful, unfortunately they are too well fed and the bread was left to float on top of the water and people just kept throwing more...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time hand feeding the fish. It’s not just about throwing chips off the wharf. It’s about having hundreds of fish swimming around your feet and being about have them suck the bread from your hand. The price is value for money....More
