The Entrance is well known for it's pelicans, and it is at precisely 3:30pm daily that two volunteers come out and feed the penguins pieces of fish, and it is a show to be enjoyed; no different to animal shows at any given zoo.

Especially at peak times, such as school holidays, it is advisable to get to the feeding area near the children's play area along The Entrance waterfront at least 15-20 minutes early in order to secure the most coveted spots, otherwise you might also be left standing.

Watch an abundance of pelicans being fed, and listen to commentary on the penguins that makes way for an interesting educational lesson on these animals.

It is critical that if you have a dog with you/are a dog owner, you must ensure that you dog is on its leash, otherwise if you get caught you will be fined.

There will be times that there won't be as many pelicans to view during the feeding session, and this is mainly when the tides are out, not because there are too many people - even though people and dogs are their predators. Pelican toys are available for purchase for $10 each after the show.
