Darwin Attractions

Fish Feeding takes place at Aquascene, which is in Doctor's Gully, below the Y.M.C.A. The fish are wild and come in to be fed only at particular times, which depend upon the tides, so enquiry needs to be made in advance. From the foot of Doctor's Gully, you can follow a path (not the road; the path is to the left of the road) up through lush tropical vegetation, At the top you will find yourself at the back of the Y.M.C.A., from where the road runs down to the Gully. 28 Doctors Gully Road.

Don’t feel like these attractions are out of reach! You can easily plan a trip to Darwin by using Expedia. If you budget your money properly, you can have an amazing time in the area without draining your bank account. The constantly enjoyable weather and myriad of national parks make it an excellent location to just get away from it all. Don’t settle for a less enjoyable vacation before at least considering an international trip. As for Australian natives, it’s worth your time to take a trip to the Northern Territory and see what the fuss is all about.
