Rydges Darwin Central
Since the early 1950s a unique and natural phenomenon occurs on the high tide amongst the tranquil tropical waters of Darwin’s Doctors Gully – schools of fish swim to the shallow shoreline to be fed by the locals.
Due to the large tidal movements of Darwin’s harbour, which can be up to eight metres, the fish can only visit Aquascene for a few hours each day before returning back out to sea with the receding tide.
Feeding sessions on deeper tides are usually best, with fish numbers at their highest between December and August.
Regular daily fish visitors include an array of friendly and inquisitive milkfish, mullet, catfish, bream, batfish and barramundi.
Join the 70,000+ visitors every year in the feeding!
