We went with our family including our 20 month old granddaughter who loved the experience of feeding the large variety of fish and feeding herself with the bread. Check for opening times as the tides determine when open. These are wild fish (not in any...More

We enjoyed this as a last days entertainment. Simple fish come and you feed. So many fish and a range of different kinds. There was someone giving a commentary. Everyone seemed to enjoy it young and old

Great morning activity for reasonable cost. So many fish and quite a few varieties. The kids and the big kids loved it. Need to check as relies on the tides. Close walking distance from CBD.
