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.

As others have stated, this place is a bit of a rip off to feed some fish. Think it cost me $25 for my 7 year old and I to throw some bread in, and we were done after about 15 minutes. I don’t think this would be worth it if you had more than one child.

This is basically up close fish feeding. Our daughter loved it (3.5 years). We stayed for hours and had a great time. Lots of great, heaps of fish, some really informative info about the types of fish from the host. Worth a visit for fish/animal enthusiast kids :)

Horrible place. the man at the front desk was lovely but the lady commentating was rude and disrespectful I watched her scream at a kid for swimming in the water and then go on to yell at her parents that where obviously struggling to get the daughter to listen as you do. Would not recommend

This place is a total rip-off. You pay $15 per adult to get in you then feed the fish with the bread which is not a natural food for fish to eat, there are huge signs up saying don’t over feed the fish even though that is how this organisation makes its money. There is a woman commentating who a/ you cannot understand and b/ is just plain vicious. When kids kept coming up to her to get more bread to feed the fish She barked at them and indicated that they can only have two pieces and that was it. If you are going to set up a tourism facility based on fish feeding you probably need to supply the food to do it with even though this whole thing is unethical and should be shut down. It was not an enjoyable experience at all.

We have lived in Darwin over 10 years but had never been here, so thought we’d go with our 4 year old son. We found it quite pricey, especially considering after about 15 minutes we were done. My recommendation would be to go when they open as it might be a bit more exciting and you will get bread. We went later in the session and there wasn’t much bread available as they only do a certain amount a session. Also the lady on the entry till was quite rude and apparently couldn’t even return our “good morning” which dampened our mood/experience. We probably wouldn’t rush back to it again. Our son enjoyed himself regardless, and that’s the main thing.
