Really disappointed with the way this is marketed and the disconnect with reality.We booked at the information centre in town and unfortunately was not really informed of how the programming runs. Had to arrive at 6.45 pm and being in the last group of the night had to wait till after 10 pm before we actually got on the beach.We... More

One of natures wonders and a must see. You won't regret doing this and it is up there with the Fairy Penguins of Phillip Island and the seals of Kangaroo Island.

Absolutely amazingly gorgeous. You realise how beautiful the world is. Whether you are watching the hatchlings come out of the sand and waddle into the sea or a mother turtle come up the beach to lay her eggs there is no denying that it really makes you appreciate how precious life is. It's such an aw-inspiring experience. you can often... More

If you are planning a trip to see the turtles book in as soon as you have dates to avoid being the last group on the beach. Booking date determines which of the 5 groups you are in on the night. Group 1 goes first and so on, I am told it can be a very long night. We were... More

Watching a turtle come up out of the sea, dig a pit, lay its eggs, fill in the egg chamber and return to the sea is absolutely brilliant and well worth doing. For a family it is a very cheap night out. Group sizes I thought were too large at 50 to 60, but it all sorted itself out. Two... More

The display centre is very interesting and the the evening is reasonably well organised. We missed the AV presentation as we were called to go to the beach to see a turtle laying her eggs (awesome to see it up close!) When we got back there was no clear advertised times for when the presentation would begin again as it... More

Had to wait 4 hours to see turtles laying eggs. Our guide was not very nice. Other groups had greater opportunity to take photos of turtles laying eggs. Eventually saw turtles coming and going to beach, eggs being laid and even saw 1 hatchling. Left at 1pm, lots of people, expect to wait a few hours before going down to... More

The Rangers said it the best, "we are here to work with the turtles, not the other way around". My best advice is to 1) Be prepared before you go with insect repellent, snacks and water, and 2) Listen and respond accordingly to the Rangers. How it works: The tickets are cheap but you are not guaranteed a turtle sighting.... More

Get to Mon Repos to see the turtles! It's really well operated by the National Park service. Guides are friendly, helpful and patient notwithstanding the luck involved in seeing a turtle lay eggs or later in the season, hatch. Make sure you book online for dates as soon as you know when you're going because your position in the groups... More
