Top Things To Do in Darwin



1. Hand feed the fish at Aquascene

Aquascene is a fish sanctuary that can be found in the tropical waters of Darwin’s Doctors Gully. The fish come to the shallow waters to feed and have been doing this for over 60 years. During this time it has meant that the fish have become use to human contact and can now be fed by hand… a truly amazing and weird experience!



2. Eat! Darwin has got some great restaurants

Darwin is the place for food lovers! The city is home to so many nationalities which means that there is such a diverse range of food available in the bar, café and restaurants. This means that you can enjoy international cuisine at its best from Thai dishes to French pastries to the plain old Aussie steak. Foodies will be in heaven…
