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.

Could you ever thought you could experience the opportunity to watch turtle hatchlings dig themselves out of their nest first hand? We were so fortunate to see this. The Ranger with their running commentary kept us updated every step of their journey. As the hatchlings came out, the ranger collected them for the interim in a holding net until he... More

Took my family and visiting family from Victoria and had a great experience with mother nature and the fantastic Rangers looking after the place. Must see for kids in Bundaberg.

This is an experience neither I nor my wife will ever forget. To see nature at its best was incredible. The Turtle came onto the beach, she made a nest, laid her eggs, covered the eggs and went back to the Ocean : all in a days work !! The organisation and the Rangers were excellent. Lots of knowledge, patience... More
