Pelican Feeding at The Entrance

The Entrance.

The Entrance is one of some popular spots along Central Coast in New South Wales, also known as The Pelican Capital in the country. The most popular attraction is Pelican Feeding show which operates 3.30 pm 7 days a week, 365 days a year come rain, hail , or shine.

According to the official info, the pelican feeding started by accident over twenty years ago when staff from a local fish and chip shop would throw out scraps. It became such a ritual that whenever the staff were late in throwing their scraps out, the pelicans would cross the road and come up to the shop to be fed. The Pelicans start coming in group to the waterfront around 3.00, approaching the platform slowly and jump into the platform just before 3.30 pm when the staff ready to feed them with the fish.

If you are using public transport, just catch the train from Sydney Central station to Gosford station and then catch Red Bus service just outside the station to The Entrance for about 40 minutes ride.
