Welcome to Aquascene


Aquascene is where hundreds of fish, such as milkfish, bream, catfish and many other species come to shore at high tide to be fed by hand in a skirmish of fins and tails. The ritual began in the late 1950s when local residents would throw scraps of food to a few mullet. Before too long, hundreds of fish were turning up at high tide every day to be fed. This popular attraction gives visitors an introduction to the marine life living off the Darwin coast.

English is the official language of Australia.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) is divided into 100 cents. Banks and bureaux de change exchange most foreign currencies. Travellers cheques are also welcome everywhere, but banks take a small commission and it is better to take cheques in major currencies (e.g. US dollars or Euros) to avoid additional charges. Credit cards are widely accepted and ATMs are freely available throughout the country. Banking hours are generally 9.30am to 4pm Monday to Thursday, and 9.30am to 5pm on Friday, but some banks offer extended hours and some are open on Saturday mornings.

Opening Times
As feeding times change daily with the tides, and Aquascene is only open at those times, it is important to check the times on the official website before visiting.
