Good time for all ages

This experience only lasts for half an hour, but it's fun and informative, and it only costs $5. Don't miss it if you're in the Kingscote area -- it's a fantastic show!

Amazing to see down by the shoreline of Kingscote. Pelicans and seagulls absolutely everywhere. Worth taking a look at!

It cost just 5 dollars and it take place at Kingscote at 5 P.m. every day. The old men that feed the pelicans it's really funny and expert. From this place there is a very nice view of Kingscote bay.

This was an interesting interaction between the birds and the public. The birds are used to the timing of the feeds and were ready and waiting for their feed.

This spectacle is one not to be missed. A small donation is requested to pay for the fish fed to the pelicans and the 'show' is very entertaining.
