So what makes Pelican Point “a stay with a difference”?
The climate for East Coast Tasmania is quite temperate, so there is plenty to do, all year round. The spectacular beach goers above are just some of the amazing wildlife you can encounter right here on the property. You really need to spend some time and wander around our many walking tracks, and discover for yourself just what is so different about staying with us.
As well as the wildlife, we offer our guests a wide variety of free activities. We have something for everyone!
FREE ELECTRIC TRICYCLES
Take one of our electric tricycles out for a spin. You can ride into St Helens and along Georges Bay, or just potter around the property.
Feeding Our Friendly Ducks.
We have our own friendly family of ducks who wander from dam to dam through out the day, They will often wander up behind the reception area of a morning or afternoon looking for a guest to feed them.
At the moment you can simply play a round of farmers golf. In future we have a small golf course planned.
Go fly fishing in our private lake for a Rainbow Trout, or have a try and catching one of the sea running brown trout in the Georges River, which borders the property. Fish from the banks of Granny’s Gut and try your luck at catching a bream. We have free fishing rods available, or bring your own. There is even room for you to bring your boat if you wish. No boat! We can advise you on how to organise a fishing charter, to go out to the shelf for some deep sea fishing, or perhaps you would prefer to catch some Whiting in the Bay.
Take a walk on one of our designated walking tracks and view some of our spectacular bird life. Click on the photo and be taken our gallery to view the amazing range of 48 species of birds that make Pelican Point Sanctuary their home.
Select one of our games for the kids, from our wide range of games available.
You can even play table tennis.
Take the time to walk our many tracks, or just take a picnic basket and go down and sit quietly near the waterways and see if you can spot an Aussie icon – the unusual platypus. Not many people get to see these shy mammals in their natural surroundings, but they are right here in the waterways of the sanctuary.
