Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the tradition of feeding the Pelicans at 12 noon has been placed on pause for many months to avoid the gathering of crowds.

My wife and I got here early at 10:30 am and saw the Pelicans on the beach. There were many of them lingering around.

While staying on Phillip Island we went to see the pelicans being fed at San Remo .
It happens every day at noon, down at the waters edge near the Fisherman’s Co op.
There was a good flock of pelicans there, lucky we were there early because at the moment the lady who was feeding them told us they change the time about as they are not allowed to have a crowd there watching due to the Covid restrictions.
It is well worth a look and learn a bit about the birds as they are fed scraps from the Fisherman’s Co Op.
It is very cold at this time of year and can be very windy so rug up warm, afterwards you can warm up with a hot feed of local fish and chips

On time, pelicans begin arriving very early, waiting for the fish lady to come and feed them. The lady was very informative in the way she presented the information about pelicans, and the co-ops role in feeding them.

Interesting to see, and can get very full. There is no guarantee of the number of pelicans that will show up. Free event, definitely worth doing.

San Remo pelicans can surely tell the time.
Each day at noon a good number of them fly in to be fed with some fish from the local co-op.
Local volunteers provide an informative commentary as they feed these large, entertaining seabirds.
We made several visits to the co-op itself for beautiful local seafood while we were there.
Highly Recommended.

I think the Pelican feeding is on a CoVid related pause at the moment but still worth a visit to see Pelicans and enjoy the views and fish and chips.

The good thing is that this is for free and you are so close to these wild birds. At 1200 pm noon the pelicans swim to where we are on the beach and LESLIE our wildlife warden starts to give us a talk about these lovely water birds. LESLIE was so excited because she had never seen so many juvenile birds at a feeding before. She gave us a very good talk about the pelicans and explained about the feeding. She explained that you do not overfeed them to make them still be wild birds to still fish for themselves. It was an adventure seeing these water birds so close. If anyone cannot go on the beach for the feeding there is a bridge where people can view the feeding. This is fun for any age group.

Been to this twice. Very informative commentary but was a bit hard to hear without the sound system. Great way to dispose of fish carcasses. The Pelicans can be quite entertaining. Combine with fish & chips at the co-op across the road.

Watching the Pelicans coming for the lunchtime feeding was good. These big birds can look so graceful in flight and certainly put on a show. Unfortunately the microphone headset the lady was using was faulty and most of what she had to say was not suitably audible. Lucky the birds of flight were the real show.
