Since the early 1950s a unique and natural phenomena has occurred on the high tide amongst the tranquil tropical waters of Darwin’s Doctors Gully.
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 60-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.
Aquascene was established in 1981 and has become a magical attraction that all the family can enjoy – it draws upwards of 70,000 visitors every year and has enjoyed widespread media coverage nationally and internationally.
Aquascene is proudly Eco Certified and all efforts are taken to minimise any impact on the natural environment.
