Barramundi Experience

Since 2015 a unique retirement home for the Darwin Aquaculture Center breeding Barramundi was created. Our friendly retirees swim to the shallow shoreline in search of their favorite meal, fresh mullet. Over the years, the fish have shed their normal shyness and are willing to be hand-fed to the delight of thousands of fascinated locals and tourists every year. B.E.N.T.  has become a magical attraction that all the family can enjoy – it attracts upwards of 5,000 visitors every year .
