Why you should be here?

The Koala Conservation Centre’s is nothing like you have experience before. First of all, it is not a zoo so the koalas here are not caged in metal cages. The koalas here say in their natural habitat like in the wild.

9.It is all about the Pelicans at San Remo Beach

There are two things about Pelicans at San Remo Beach. Firstly, it is the fishermen feeding the pelicans on the beach and the Pelican View – The San Remo Fisherman’s Co-Operative Restaurant.

The Pelican Feeding is a daily affair, every day at noon on the beach next to the Pelican View. This is a daily free event and everyone is welcome here. However, we missed the Pelican Feeding but we spotted one pelican swimming away.

After you finish with the Pelican Feeding, time for lunch and the best place of course is the Pelican View restaurant.

The restaurant is established in 1948 and it is located at the San Remo pier. There is also a free museum next to the restaurant but we didn’t make it on our last visit.

10.Chillax, Eat and Stay at The Cowes

Unlike the surf beach of Woolomai Beach, the beach at the Cowes is more suitable for swimming as the sea is calmer here. Thus, this is great for families and friends to chill, relax or the swim here.
