Great to know that the towns people stood up to development to save this precious space for the turtles to hatch their young on this pristine beach and peaceful area away from bright lights and noise, the volunteers do an excellent job.

Have visited Mon Repos many times and am never disappointed. Most visitors to Bundaberg want to visit Mon Repos and I know many of my friends and family always enjoy the night out with the turtles. It is especially educational for the kids and the Mums and Dads also love the experience.

An absolute must for locals and visitors alike. An extremely educational night where those involved are obviously passionate about everything to do with the aquatic visitors to our shores. Or is it their shores?

We were at Mon Repos earlier in July as part of our time in the Bundaberg area. It’s a beautiful area with nesting turtles, we were told we may not see any turtles while we were there but we saw some teeny-tiny ones which were adorable (as much as turtles can be adorable) and a mommy turtle laying eggs a...

I went there with my kids in March. We were put in group 4 and I feared that we might have to wait really long to go to the beach and see turtles or would not be called at all. But after some waiting time (about 2 1/2 hours) we were able to go with group 3. After pouring rain... More

Loved reading all the information they have on offer. Although it isnt turtle season, we enjoyed strolling along the beach and listening to the relaxing sounds of the waves

My expectations were high, even though we were informed beforehand that we may not get to see anything (can't predict nature) and would have to wait a while. However, we were lucky enough to see a turtle lay eggs and even got to help move the eggs to a higher nesting ground away from erosion to ensure that the eggs... More

This is a lovely little beach north of bagarra. The best times to visit are December for laying then latter in january for the hatchlings. There is also an interesting little museum that gives you lots of information about the turtles that come in to lay. If you have kids this is a must visit place.

Of course you should go to this special place in the turtle season but whenever you go is a good time. Informative displays about turtles but also the beach is deserted and just the way a beach should be.
