The Pelican Cafe is a licensed waterfront cafe restaurant.

In 1975 a local fisherman named Cliff Ross filleted fish on the Kalbarri foreshore and fed the scraps the pelicans that would waddle up to him. Over 30 years later this tradition continues a stone's throw away from Cliff's historic home, now known as The Pelican Cafe Kalbarri.

Watch the Pelicans every morning over coffee, enjoy breakfast or lunch with stunning panoramic ocean and river views, or indulge in Western Australian wine and beer at sunset.

Featuring indoor and outdoor dining on the waterfront, the friendly team welcomes you.
