I have been to see this a few times now as it fascinates me the way the pelicans seem to know what time it is and start gathering on the beach to wait to be fed.
They just stand around waiting not bothered by the crowds gathering to watch them!
At 1.30 pm, the guy comes out of Charis Seafoods with the buckets of fish 'bits' and sets up the area where he will feed them, while he is doing this the pelicans are slowly walking up the beach to the area and then waiting for him to be ready.
Then the fun begins, don't stand too close or you will be covered with fish blood and guts, but be close enough to see that they get a feed and then go to the back of the line again so the next ones can eat. A must see if you are in Surfers Paradise!
