Aquascene Tours

62 reviews

It's amazing what a few scraps of bread flung to a mullet can start. That's what a resident of Doctors Gully did in the 1950s, and it didn't take long for the local fish to realize they were onto a good thing. The number of fish turning up for a free meal grew and grew, the word got around, and these days it's turned into Aquascene, a healthy tourist attraction.

Every day at high tide (the tides vary, naturally, so you'll have to check the local paper or contact Aquascene for exact feeding times) a deluge of fish flood into the shallow bay, napkins on, as it were. The original mullet population have been joined by a host of other species including catfish, milkfish and bream.

Practical Info

The fish are now so tame you can feed them by hand and get a good close-up look at the local marine varieties. If you're squeamish about fishy lips or don't feel like getting in the water, there's seating from which you can watch the feeding frenzy.

Address: 28 Doctors Gully Road, Darwin 0800, Australia
Hours: Feeding time at high tide, usually in the morning or afternoon. Closed Dec 25 and during low tides
Admission: Adults: AU$11, Children AU$7
