Great event to take the kids to. The Pelicans are very comfortable and knowledgeable about what is going on. They were hilarious and also intriguing to watch. The 'show' is short but very enjoyable and considering the chap only asks a small donation I thought it was well worth it.

We did not know about this until we spoke to the staff at the Aurora Ozone when we booked. They told us the time to go and what we would see. The presenter is a great character, real down to earth Ozzie, loves his work and tells a great yarn. The feeding is fantastic, be there for 5.00 pm sharp,... More

Animated local gentleman gives a talk at 4.50pm every day in Kingscote. Educated the crowd about Pelicans as he fed them. Fees are $5 for adults and $3 for children. He will not tolerate non paying bystanders looking & listening from outside the allocated area. Personally I think it should be tipping / donation only.

Fed the pelicans at Kingscote with the fish skeletons from our fishing trip the day before. Great fun!

lots of pelicans wait to be fed by a person who has a speil about pelicans in general. While it is interesting, watching the antics of pelicans I do wonder if encouraging birds to come for food albeit local fish, is a good idea.

This was a very low key great way to be so close to the amazing birds. It was so funny when one flew in low and stole food from the bucket.

The host is a very dry Australian who was very funny and informative. The Pelicans played there part in putting on a great show.
