Educational, thrilling, interesting, and amazing. Great for young and old. An amazing insight into the life of our egg laying turtles, how they return year after year to lay their eggs here, and the struggle as you witness the hatchlings head off into hopefully their life at sea. A must do - protected species and great organised control by rangers.

This is an amazing way to see turtles in their natural environment. Here, you get to see the turtles lay their eggs between Nov and Feb, and watch the eggs hatchlings emerge between (very) late Jan and March.

Even if you just walk alone the beach around Mon Repos carefully, you will see some different plants that you can only see here. Definitely have a walk around the information center- you will learn something new. As a human being- it is our responsibility to give next generation the chance to see the turtles and give the turtles the... More

I have been here so many times whenever we have visitors from out of town this is always on the agenda as a must see.I have seen the turtles nesting and have been lucky enough to see the hatchlings leave the nest and they are both spectacular sights

Awesome to see the turtles hatching, to hear from the guides how many are in the nest, the way the rangers/guides look out for them and seriously fun to watch them running to the beach. Nature at its best.

We drove to Mon Repos from Bargara on a saturday afternoon. At no point did any sign advise that the place was closed, and we got to the centre and nothing was open at all, and there was no information available. We had a stroll down to the beach, which is just a beach at this time of year, and... More

This place is fascinating, open from November to March. The turtles come out of the water at night and lay their eggs during November to late January, then during March the tiny hatchlings scuttle down to the water and swim away. The hatchery closed this year at the end of March and will re-open in November. During the laying season... More

Mon Repos Conservation Park, a turtle rookery which hosts the largest concentration of marine turtles on the eastern Australian mainland. From Nov to March each year adult turtles come ashore to lay eggs on the Mon Repos beach. Mon Repos meaning 'My Rest'. One of the most beautiful, pristine beaches I have seen.

Amazing place to go for turtle spotting on the beach in the dark...Turtles heaving themselves up the beach at... in our case midnight ..the digging of the nest holes and depositing of the eggs is not to be missed just the tears in the turtles eyes as they struggle to lay their eggs is so touching and once seen will...
