Inspirock Rating:
3.5/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web
Time your visit to Aquascene for high tide when hundreds of fish approach the shore to be fed by curious onlookers. You get to hand-feed the fish while dangling your feet in the water. Though some of the bigger fish sometimes nibble on your toes, not even the scariest-looking ones ever bite hard. The site is known for its friendly atmosphere and helpful staff. You can mingle with visitors from around the world, all enjoying this rare close-up experience with Australia's underwater world. When planning your visit, remember that feeding times are dependent on the tide, so be sure to check the website or call ahead for the schedule.

  • This is the 3rd time I have gone over the past 13 years, and did not enjoy at all, the staff just yell at people for throwing bread in the wrong spot and don't evan do a talk about the zero tide anymore , the back area is also closed now. Dont waste the money on these people
