We were able to feed the fish while listening to the staff provide commentary on the types of fish that were coming in to be fed.

Great to see fish close by. I especially liked the large round fish that feed straight from your hand. This attraction is quite old fashioned, and a bit overpriced at $15 per adult. I wouldn't recommend it as a 'must do' attraction. I went on...More

These are wild fish and there is no guarantee to see certain fish, but still it is worth while going. Numerous fish do appear and I don't think I've ever been so excited to feed fish. We got catfish, bat fish and a bigger kind...More

Thanks for the feedback mr_cow. Crocosaurus is a fabulous attraction and great if you want to get up close to the snapping lizards... Aquascene gives you the opportunity to get up close to the wild fish in their natural surrounds and gives you the opportunity...More

I've been here before which is why I came back again. You end up feeding wild fish that come in at the same tide times each day. Only criticism is the woman who was talking about the types of fish etc, could have at least...More

Feeding the fish at high tide were so much fun. Didn't think we will enjoy it, but the afternoon were well spend. Doctors Gully is rich in history, and to think that this activity has been going on since 1954. Fantastic.

Thanks Ernest - the whole of Doctors Gully is steeped in History and yes it is pretty amazing to think it all started with one bloke throwing scraps of bread to the fish in "54.

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

HI David - if you are local you can purchase a Fintastic pass for an extra $10 that allows you to come back for the next 12 months - this is great for the kids/grandkids.

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.
