Fun...and informative too

The friendly and jovial host convinced my bird-phobic wife to sit in the front row and stay for the whole informative and humorous feeding session. 'Nuff said!

Not sure so enjoyed it more, me or the kids. The host was really entertaining and informative. Please note a contribution is required, it's a pity there is always someone who tries to get away without paying.

This was back in January 2012, so i apologize in advance! I thought this was great. For just $5 per person, you get to enjoy 30 minutes of entertainment in its most natural form... through pelicans! There's also some good scenery around, which makes it relaxing! Overall, I'd recommend you go see and enjoy!

This was a fantastic presentation with lots of factual information packed into amusing stories. There were about 20 people at our session, and everyone was impressed. There was a rude Italian middle aged couple who enjoyed the whole session (including the part where he stated the price of admission was to cover the price of fish which he needs for... More

A great local icon that has been going for years. Good Aussie humour with lots of pelicans on display. Informative as well. Highly recommend the 20 minute show

For a $5 per head charge it is a good 30 min of distraction in an otherwise picturesque but sleepy town The guy who facilitates the spectacle of ravenous pelicans squabbling with each other over fish entrails is a quirky character

A local farmer has been feeding the pelicans for some years and has developed a very entertaining and informative talk whilst he is doing this. Highly recommended.

The pelicans (and seagulls) were already gathering for the feed when we arrived about 4:45. This is testament to the dedicated work that goes on all year round, even when there is no one around to witness the feeding. The talk was informative and funny and the experience of having a pelican fly in low over your head was amazing,... More
