Kangaroos and Pelicans

Kangaroos and Pelicans

Join us on a day expedition to see wild kangaroos and pelicans in the comfort of one of our private tours.

Everyone knows that kangaroos are enthralling with their amazing uniqueness (pouches, hopping, life cycle, etc). However, what you may not know, is that our beautiful pelicans can also amaze. These beautiful creatures of the air and sea have some secrets themselves. Did you know their family can be traced back 30 million years? …and of course everyone knows the limerick.

“A wonderful bird is the pelican.
His beak can hold more than his belly can.
He can hold in his beak enough food for a week.
But I’ll be damned if I can see how the hell ‘e can.”

Big Bird Feeding

The Entrance, a beautiful coastal town with a large sand bar, is home to one of the world’s largest pelican feeding venues. Here flocks of people are joined by groups of pelicans. Every day volunteers feed the majestic birds scraps thrown out by a local fish and chip shop. The ritual has been going on for over two decades and attracts a crowd of both pelicans and people. We often encounter groups of 50 of more of our big beaked friends.

Walking with Roos

At another coastal town, we see kangaroos wandering around. Sometimes we see these urban big foots leaping down the street. Whilst you may not be able to see kangaroos jumping down Pitt St, we often see them here in people’s gardens. We see them grazing on the local sports field and parklands. Depending on the time of year, we may see a joey poke its head out of its mother’s pouch. They are fascinating and mesmerising to watch. You will also learn about the fascinating lives of these amazing animals. 

In addition to seeing sometimes scores of kangaroos, we often see some of Australia’s beautiful native bird life such as the beautiful rainbow lorrikeets, galahs, cockatoos and kookaburras.
