Decided to take relatives from overseas but didnt really enjoy it mainly due to the high number of foreign tourists that go and can be so ignorant and rude so ruin it for other people. If you want to fight to get a good view to see the pelicans being fed then you will enjoy it.

Thank you for your feedback regarding the pelican feeding. Unfortunately during the peak times it does get very busy and sometimes it's hard for everyone to see. I will pass on your feedback to the coordinator and to see if the crowds can be better managed in the peak times.

It is amazing to watch these huge birds swallow their fish meals. The shore area nearby is great for a follow up stroll with shops nearby, and an awesome ice creamery. I highly recommend this tourist activity.

This is such a wonderful place to take the kids to see 30 or more pelican converse at The Entrance Central Coast. At the same time every day feeding the pelicans start. The kids get so involved in watching these big birds open their enormous mouths to get fish it's great to watch... these birds are awesome.
