Our grand daughter wanted to come here and so we tagged along. She had lots of fun feeding the fish and having them swim around her feet. Not sure it was worth the $30 for the three of us but you can't say no to...More

Hadn't been to feed the fish in years and had forgotten how much fun it was. Great variety of fish to nibble on your toes

Took five adult family members from Finland and was shocked by the increase in entry fees since the last time I went (which was a few years ago). $85 for six people to feed fish seems very expensive to me! Even although the bread is...More

This attraction was really interesting - the guides provide information if you’re keen to learn but otherwise just feeding the fish is fun and unusual.

Hot Tip: This place is only open at High Tide as the fish do not come and want to be fed until then, so don't be like us donkeys who did not heed this information, and had to come back later. Other reviews explain everything...More

Enjoyed feeding the fish, they take if straight from your fingers. Probably a little expensive but still a fun experience. Would be good for the kids.

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.

Just off the Esplanade and a short walk [15-20 mins] from the Hilton Double Tree hotel is this cool attraction. Drop your feet in thee water and have them sucked by fish as you feed them. Beware of the catfish though. They will apparently sting...More
