This hands-on experience is a great way to interact and learn about a variety of our South Australian bird species, including the biology and natural history of some of the region’s most iconic birds, and the habitats that they live in. The Pelican Feed and Wetland Walk experience offers our guests the chance to spend time with the bird keeper, at the Main Lake and in the Swamp Aviary.  Guests will learn why wetlands are important habitats, the issues with habitat loss, and the effect it has on the species that call them home.
