We had a great night. Kids loved it. Our advice is to book as soon as you know the date you're going, because it affects the time you'll get out onto the beach. We had friends who didn't get onto the beach until 12 on the night they went (but they weren't complaining btw). Take plenty of snacks & entertainment... More

Only a brief visit to have a look at the beach. As it was over the Easter period it was pretty crowded so will revisit off season

It was amazing to watch the baby turtles hatch out from the sand and then watch them run to the sore. Make sure you take a torch and insect repellent when you go. I was lucky enough to watch two hatchings as another nest started hatching while watching the digout of the initial hatch. The staff were great dealing with... More

A fantastic night, well organised. We lined up at designated time and had to wait a while to gain entry to the gallery area, getting a sticker which showed which group we would be in for turtle viewing. Very pleasant staff. We then went into a great area with exhibitions, a shop and seating area until it was time to... More

Visited Mon Repos in February when the hatching is happening. We were due to go on the tour on the Sunday night but due to the cyclone hitting Rockhampton we had to postpone until the Tuesday. I recommend taking insect repellent as the mosquitoes and midges can be pretty vicious. They have an excellent information centre where you can learn... More

I can only describe this moment in my life as beautiful and unique. I liked it a lot and I recommend everybody that passes or goes to Bundaberg to visit this place. The tours are at night. We were the last group of three and we had to wait a bit longer but nothing to complain about as this is... More

I have been to Mon Repos many times and over the years it has evolved nicely. The old days of everyone just heading to the beach with their torches are gone. It is all strictly supervised now with a dedicated welcome center to educate and organize visitors to view the turtles to the mutual benefit for both human and turtle.... More

We visit Mon Repos every time we have friends and family from overseas. It's an amazing experience and you have to see the turtles lying eggs from November to January and then young turtles hatching from January to February. You will have a night to remember for only a few dollars.

The turtles were amazing. The tourist operational side is very much less so. We arrived at 6;45 for 7pm as per our booking slip. We booked approx 5 weeks in advance and ended up designated to a 'Group 4' which we realised as a heap of people left for the beach meant that we would sit and wait for over... More
