This was an amazing thing to witness. I think the process of getting everyone in could use some improvement but besides that we had a great time. We timed our visit so we could see the babies hatching and we were not disappointed. Luckily for us, our group was the first to be called onto the beach, even though we... More

Wonderful evening! We were very lucky to be taken quite quickly to the hatching site despite being group 3. 101 hatchlings made it to the surf. Some people disappeared quickly but as we were walking back we spotted more hatchlings making their way down. As we were waiting an adult female came up the beach to lay her eggs! The... More

What a fantastic experience! Watched 120 little turtles hatch and make their way into the ocean. Loved that we were able to be so close and interactive with the turtles! Well worth the visit. Only thing that would have made it perfect would have been more documentaries shown whilst waiting to help fill in time.

We visited on the 26th Feb 2015, nearing the end of the egg laying/hatching season. I have to say it's one of the best experiences I've had throughout our 6 week travels around Australia. So worth the mere $10, which to us was half that in pounds due to the exchange rate. The team at the rookery were so well... More

We booked ahead which worked beautifully with our kids not having to wait too long. Saw the turtle hatchlings - such a great experience, just loved it. Great value for money.

A must do for adults and kids alike. They allocate the groups based on when you book so if you know you are going then book to get in the early leaving groups. We booked about 2 mths prior and got in group 2. It appears there are normally 5 groups. The night we arrived you lined up out the... More

Spent a wonderful evening at Mon Repos Turtle Centre - great place & fascinating time watching Loggerhead turtle up close. Thanks so much to our guides who were so knowledgeable. Well worth the visit.

This was an amazing, once in a lifetime experience we will always remember. We arrived via the 'Turtle Express' (well worth the money), and were allocated to group one (there were over 300 people that night, allocated to around five groups). It all seemed a bit disorganised at the start, but once you see those baby turtles, the waiting in... More

What can I say I enjoyed the turtle experience. Not quite knowing if we would see a mother turtle laying her eggs or hatchlings arriving into the world. We got the mother turtle laying her eggs. It was very interesting listening to our guide and his knowledge about how long it takes the turtles get to this point. (As in... More
