A great facility. There's plenty of information to exhaust the eyes and mind while waiting to be called to a visit to the beach. You'll probably have to visit twice - the first time to observe the mother deposit up to 150 eggs into her nest. We were asked to assist to relocate the eggs in another man-made nest further... More

We absolutely loved our experience at Mon Repos!. We visited in March. Unfortunately we made our reservation late so we were put in the fifth (last) group so by the time it was our turn to go to the beach all baby turtels were said to have left the beach. We were a bit disappointed when we were told we... More

We went there around 3p.m with 2 under 4s. There was not another soul , so we had the whole turtle information area with nice exhibits to ourselves. Kids could ask questions loudly and look at the display at their own pace and its free. Even though it is not the turtles laying eggs season - a short board walk... More

Enjoy walking, well this one is for you. A leisurely walk from Bargara to Mon Repos along the TurtleTrail taking in the flora & fauna. It's a pleasant walk with some stunning views, especially the white sandy beach as the end destination. You can visit the Turtle Information Centre or see the stone wall built by the Kanakas however be... More

At last. A little bit of unspoilt coast saved for loggerhead turtles but great for those of us longing for natural surroundings and quiet restful peace. Take your joggers or bush walking shoes or ride a bike from Bargara.

Without a doubt, one of the best nature experiences. On a par with whales even! Being up close with turtle hatchlings as they make their way out to sea, really makes you appreciate this wonderful world in which we live. A must do for people of all ages - really fabulous for kids and excellent value for money.

Went to Mon Repose with family last January (2014) and we counted it among the highlights of our first trip to Australia (Queensland). Saw three turtles returning to their birthplace on a beautiful moonlit beach and laying their eggs and then slowly returning to the water. Well worth the wait until almost 12:30am. The experience would have been amazing if... More

We saw baby turtles coming out of the nest down to the ocean then we witnessed the female turtle come out of the ocean & up the beach where she dug a nest & laid her eggs. It wass really beautiful to see the female lay... More

I went to Mon Repos March 2014. The entire experience was amazing! I was in the first group to go out and within 10 minutes of walking along the beautiful moon-lit beach, we were introduced to many little turtles making their way down the sand bank. We then played a part in guiding the turtles to the sea before watching... More

Like turtles? Then when the season's right you can see the turtles laying eggs and then you can witness the babies hatching and running to the see. Also very informative area about the types of turtles and their habits. Great for the family.
