Nice to be as close to the nature as possible!

The pelican feeding is a good idea to bring people close to the nature! You can feel the birds and they like your feeding!

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

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!

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.
