Pelican Feeding @ Clontarf Park

Watch the delight on the kids faces as they experience the morning feeding of the quirky Pelicans at Clontarf Park.

Bring the kids to Pelican Park, situated along the Redcliffe peninsula in Clontarf, only 10 minutes drive from Scarborough, for a morning of Pelican feeding by the beach.

Every morning at 10am, the volunteers at Clontarf Visitor Information Centre bring out a bucket of fresh fish to feed the local Pelican population. The Pelicans often gather an hour in advance in anticipation of their fishy feast while the caring volunteers check the sea birds for any injuries.

Kids and adults alike are most welcome to observe these metre tall birds up close while the Pelican feeding takes place. The Pelican numbers tend to fluctuate from day to day as they continuously search for fresh food sources (their favourite meals being flathead, whiting and bream).

The park, aptly called Pelican Park is located at the southern end of Redcliffe Peninsula just next to Bells Beach. Apart from the huge feathered friends that visit daily, Pelican Park boasts an all-abilities playground with a Liberty Swing overlooking the bay. There is also a fully fenced boat-themed playground with undercover electric barbecues, picnic tables, toilet facilities, boat ramp and stretches of golden sand.

It’s just another fantastic family-friendly thing to do on the Redcliffe Peninsula during the summer school holidays.

Book your Summer School Holiday Accommodation here at Scarborough Beach Resort. Offering a selection of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom fully-self contained holiday apartments and onsite facilities including swimming lap pool, gym and a large heated spa that you can relax in and really unwind this Summer!

WHAT: Scarborough Originals
WHEN: First Saturday of each month in 2019, 1pm-5pm (next gig is 2 Feb)
WHERE: Jamieson Park, 8 Reef Point Esplanade, Scarborough
ENTRY: FREE

IT was only a matter of time before some clever dudes put their heads together to showcase our bright young musos in the stunning setting of Jamieson Park.

The FREE live music series Scarborough Originals is designed to provide a regular platform for local emerging artists.

Into its fifth month, the event opens the doors to a variety of music genres – from rock to pop and reggae to alternative, blues and soul, etc – and invites creatives from all walks of life to get involved.

The not for profit East Coast Originals work with a team of volunteers to make it happen and are always looking for artists eager to showcase their talents. This runs the gamut from face painters to drumming and dance troupes.

FAMILY FRIENDLY
Families, singles and groups of mates out for a day by the beach are encouraged to bring a picnic and non-alcoholic beverages to the slice of paradise on the peninsula.

This special part of the world has uninterrupted water views and it’s close to local cafes and restaurants.

The next gathering is Saturday, June 2, 2018.

Scarborough Originals relies on crowdfunding and donations and, to this end, raffle tickets will be sold on the day to keep the wheels turning on this worthy endeavour. Get your raffle tickets from the “merch” desk or volunteers mingling surreptitiously in the crowd!
