See the Pelicans at Clontarf

Pelicans and Playgrounds by the Bay

As a Mum on a budget with a rambunctious toddler, I am constantly on the lookout for fun and free adventures to take him on. Pelican feeding at Clontarf on Brisbane's northside, is a free activity that takes place every single morning. We went this week and loved it.

Located at Pelican Park right on the bay, the views are gorgeous and the perfect setting for a spot of pelican feeding. The feeding takes place every day at 10am and is fully staffed by volunteers. We saw ten hungry pelicans gobble down fish, with some information given by a lovely volunteer. It was really fun watching them all fly and waddle their way to the designated feeding area, and my toddler was delighted.

The feeding only takes about 10 minutes or so, but there are also two excellent and fully fenced playgrounds nearby, so you can extend your excursion to include some serious playtime.

Both the playgrounds have lots of great equipment including forts, slides, ride ons, climbing frames and swings. They are big enough to keep your little ones occupied, but small enough and fenced enough that you can relax a bit with a coffee. They also have a liberty swing.





Nearby to the playgrounds are picnic areas with toilets and bbq's, as well as walking paths that stretch along the bay, perfect for a walk with a pram or a bike ride. There are also sandy areas for digging and a paddle in the warmer months. You can often spot kite surfers and parachutes making their way into shore.



Pelican Park is close to restaurants, cafes and fish and chip shops as well, so if you want to pick up a coffee or something to eat you have plenty of options right across the road. And there is plenty of parking!
