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.

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.

This bloke has been feeding these Pelicans for some time now, he took over from another bloke who had been feeding them for some time too. Feeding time is 7.00pm & the Pelicans seem to be able to tell time as they are waiting for him, or should that be the free tucker!? If you want to see a bloke... More

Not a bad attraction but beware the guide mentions during the show that there is fee and waits at the exit for payment, it would be nice if your knew before you entered as the show is not worth it
