Loved the Pelican feeding at 3:30pm - that is definitely the highlight. Get here early for the 3:30pm feeding for a seat. At least 30mins before and get your spot. There is quite a few 'foreign visitors' who aren't very familiar with our cultural etiquette,...More

Great walk, can be very busy on a weekend as we discovered, parking a bit limited for the area we thought. Great Restaurants and activities for children in the area. Well worth a look, Pelicans in the area make it.

Had a great time watching the pelicans being fed at 3.30pm. It's so relaxing and the pelicans are so graceful despite their large size. The talk whilst being fed was very informative.
