Such an amazing experience to feed the fish and have them swim around your legs in their natural environment. I really value that this family cares about the fishes quality of life, over a making money scheme for humans to enjoy. This is what every...More

Kids had a great time! Hand feeding fish here is an experience that must be done in Darwin. Only open during high tides so check times. Loved it

Worth a visit if you a ) have children b ) have never seen a fish before or c) are physically attracted to fish. Otherwise it's a waste of money.

Thank's Kesia for your great review... having wild fish eat out of your hand is quite an experience - I'm glad you got to share it with us!

Every relative I have taken here has loved the experience. The fish are wild, not penned. Bread is purchased from the premises. A guide gives a talk. There are more local points of interest close by along a walking track. Take the time to do...More
