We arrived at the turtle centre around 7pm and we're the second group to go out, at first I was a bit disappointed as I thought we may not see anything being in the second group but by 8pm we we're on the beach.. We saw 3 loggerhead turtles in all, 2 of which laid their eggs in front of... More

I booked this on a whim thinking it might be cool to pass the time whilst in Bargara and it turned out to be one of the most amazing experiences of our lives. Not only did we witness a rare and beautiful Loggerhead turtle make a nest and lay her eggs but once she had returned to the ocean we... More

As a local of Bundaberg, I accompanied visitors to the turtle sanctuary at Mon Repos twice during the November 2013 to March 2014 turtle season. Bookings are a must as experiencing the wonder of turtle laying and then the hatchlings scurrying down to the ocean is so popular and group sizes must be limited. All visitors I have taken to...

No-one can really describe how this experience will make you feel. From understanding what the turtles go through to navigate back to shore to lay their eggs, to the hatchlings continuing the circle of life. Truly amazing !!

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.
