Aquascene

It's amazing what a few scraps of breadflung to a mullet can start. That's what a resident of Doctors Gully did in the 1950s, and it didn't take long for the local fish to realize they were onto a good thing. The number of fish turning up for a free meal grew and grew, the word got around, and these days it's turned into Aquascene, a healthy tourist attraction.

Every day at high tide (the tides vary, naturally, so you'll have to check the local paper or contact Aquascene for exact feeding times) a deluge of fish flood into the shallow bay, napkins on, as it were.The original mullet population havebeen joined by a host of other species including catfish, milkfish and bream.

Practical Info

The fish are now so tame you can feed them by hand and get a good close-up look at the local marine varieties. If you're squeamish about fishy lips or don't feel like getting in the water, there's seating from which you can watch the feeding frenzy.
