We left feeling a little underwhelmed by our trip to Aquascene, at $15pp it isn't the cheapest for an hour. There are lots of fish that turn up at high tide and it is fun to watch them swim about looking for bread, but you'll...More

This was a great place to see a whole lot of different, large fish up close and personal. The feeding was great and it was exhilarating to have massive fish grab food out of your hand. We spent a little over an hour here but...More

Its a good way to while away hour. Opening hours are subject to tides, so check before you go. Trays of bread are supplied to feed to various species of fish. It was fascinating to watch the Batfish stick their mouths out of the water...More

What a great way to experience Darwin wildlife. The carpark is right outside and the whole experience is really reasonably priced at $15. Easily accessible for all the family. Standing in the water up to your ankles the fish swarm around your feet. They appear...More

Help feed the fish and watch them swim about. Make sure you know when feeding time is for the day. Commentary is informative and useful. Only need about an hour.

This was such a fun way to spend an afternoon and great value at $15 entry fee. Quirky, and interesting commentary. These are wild fish, and include catfish, mullet, garfish and large milkfish among others. I'm not sure how good for the fish feeding them...More
