The Pelican Feed takes place on The Entrance waterfront at 3.30pm each day.
The Pelican Feed started over 20 years ago by staff at Clifford’s fish and chip shop, who would feed the scraps to the pelicans every day. Jimbo’s Seafood then took over the feeding by this time it was a tradition and the pelicans would waddle over to Jimbo’s, crossing what was then a road and demand their fish from staff.
One of the main objectives of the pelican feed is to keep an eye on the pelican's medical conditions as many have hooks and lines tangled up in their gullets, wings and other parts of their body. The feed is a chance for the co-ordinator and volunteers to assess their well being.
