About Aquascene Fish Feeding
Aquascene is a popular fish feeding sanctuary in the heart of Darwin. Visit the fish at high tide when hundreds of friendly local wild fish swim to the shallow shoreline in search of a gratuitous meal of fresh bread. Over the course of this enduring 70 plus year tradition, the fish have shed their normal shyness and are willingly hand-fed to the delight of thousands of fascinated locals and tourists every year.

There is something captivating about getting to feed lots of fish (and watching everybody else's reactions). Staff were friendly and gave us lots of information on the various fish and of the history of Doctors Gully.

An affordable and fun activity for the whole family. Beautiful setting, so many fish, nice shady areas to relax and enjoy the view (playground of you have little ones), lots of wildlife too. Staff friendly and told you about the various fish. Interesting history of the area to learn about too. We spent about an hour there, but could have stayed longer. This was a short walk from the Hilton Doubletree where we were staying - so very convenient!

Crazy price to visit an old boat ramp where it used to be free. Aquascene provide bread to feed the fish which gives them the two stars. Utterly irresponsible to provide food with almost zero nutritional value to them.

Response from Aquascene F, Manager at Aquascene Fish Feeding

Hi Donc, Im afraid that Aquascene has not bee free to feed the fish since the 80s and bread supplied by local bakeries has been their treat everyday since then. Im sure they get plenty of nutrition in their daily livres and just as us humans enjoy a cheat meal as a treat too. Have a great day!

MY wife and I enjoyed this and I know by the smiles on their faces the young children did as well. Such a novel thing to do for everyone and not expensive either.

Loved my trip here, feeding the fish was such a zen like experience - felt so relaxing and blanking. Spent the entire opening time feeding fish. The team there were wonderful as well.
