Advertised in a lot of the brochures. Got there early with a lot of other people, including those Pelicans. Waited waited and waited, even gave them half an hour past the advertised time and no one turned up to feed them. What a lot of...More

This gentleman has been feeding the pelicans for a very long time. I remember seeing him 21 years ago, but then there were just a few pelicans and we stood on the beach. Now there is a deck for the birds, and benches for the...More

Every day at 5:00 pm. What a show from the Pelican Man! He is a very dedicated and enthusiastic gentlemen and has a lot of fun hand feeding an unruly mob of hungry pelicans. A bit on the smelly side (fish) and can be cold...More

An entertaining 20 minutes which makes great photos. Go see which pelicans are the greedy ones. But please pay the host the $10 that he asks for. It's not much and he does a great job of taking care of these beautiful birds. To watch...More

This is a fun thing to do if you are in Kingscote: at 5 p.m. each day, the same man who has been doing this for a number of years, feeds the pelicans in the bay. He is very funny and engaging, and the half...More
