About the Tour
Mon Repos Conservation Park is the largest loggerhead turtle rookery in the South Pacific, Loggerhead, Flatback and Green turtles come ashore from November to March. Nightly tours commence in November each year. It is an amazing sight to see these huge creatures heaving their way up the beach to find a safe spot to dig a nest and lay their eggs. Some 6-8 weeks later the tiny hatchlings may be seen emerging from their sandy nests to head towards the sea. The sex of baby turtles is determined by the temperature of their nests.
The Mon Repos Visitor Centre has been set up to help you understand and appreciate turtle biology - take the time to look at the displays and browse through the shop. Ranger shows and videos are presented in the outdoor amphitheatre (weather permitting).
Mon Repos is an easy 14km drive from Bundaberg or just five minutes drive north from Bargara. more...
