The Entrance – a place where pelicans live


The Entrance is located on the NSW Central Coast where the magnificent Tuggerah Lake meets the Pacific Ocean. Being so close to both Newcastle and Sydney it has become the ideal holiday destination for many.

In 1999, The Entrance waterfront was named ‘The Pelican Capital of Australia’ by Wyong Council to coincide with the opening of a pelican feeding platform as part of the waterfront redevelopment. The daily feeding of the pelicans at 3.30 pm daily has been a regular event at The Entrance for around 20 years since an employee at Clifford’s fish shop Peter Major started giving them his scraps during his lunch break. The daily practice attracts 20,000 visitors annually.

This is a great place to visit during weekend such what I did in the beginning of January.
