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.

If you happen to be passing this pelican feeding on the wharf you are asked to pay $5 or keep keep walking. It was interesting but wouldn't go out of my way to see it

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.

Best $5 per person I've spent in ages! Local gentleman feeds a patient and enthusiastic group of pelicans, seagulls and pacific gulls fresh fish at 5pm each evening. Make sure you arrive early to secure a seat on the comfortable bleacher seating, especially during school...More

Stopped by for the pelican feeding, was not disappointed. John, a colorful local entertained with information. The pelicans were up close and personal, hungry for a handout. Great fun!

Pelican feeding happens at 5.00pm each day and the feeding is done by an Australian full of character and wit. It costs $5 for adults and $3 for children. A fun way to spend 15-20 minutes.
