The Entrance

We went to The Entrance this afternoon, the place where the scenic Tuggerah Lakes meet the Pacific Ocean.

The tide had turned, and the water was crystal clear as it raced through the deep sandy channel next to the promenade on its way into the lake.

The pelicans and seagulls that rested on golden sand in the middle of the entrance would soon be floating, as the water level rose with the tide.

We ate an ice cream treat as we strolled along the promenade and under the road bridge.

Pelican feeding time at 3.30pm always draws a crowd, and today was no exception, even though it is still winter here. We left well before the pelicans were fed, but there were already plenty of the large heavy-billed birds waiting for their daily treat.

Australia has many beautiful tourist spots along the east coast (all around the long island coast actually), and The Entrance is one of them.

  1. What a beautiful place. Those Pelicans are absolutely magnificent. Just love the shot from under the bridge.

    • Thanks Don, it is a lovely place. And I just love the pelicans. My husband – his favourite bird is the pelican – suggested the under-bridge shot. It came out well :-).

  2. And the question is how do the pelicans know it’s 3.30?

    • It is amazing how birds and other animals learn a routine. It seems to be easier when food is involved 🙂

      • But also when people are involved, lol. They seem to know when it’s time for a walk too.

  3. I’ll definitely put The Entrance on my ‘must visit’ list 🙂 I love pelicans. Looks like it was a perfect day 🙂
