Mon Repos Turtle Season

Exhibition and Shows

15 Nov 2016 to 31 Mar 2018

The Mon Repos Conservation Park, within the Southern Great Barrier Reef, supports the largest concentration of nesting marine turtles on the Eastern Australian mainland and has the most significant Loggerhead turtle nesting population in the South Pacific.

Visitors can witness nesting and hatching turtles over the summer months on Mon Repos beach, however turtles are easily disturbed if proper turtle watching guidelines are not followed.

The Mon Repos Turtle experience operates nightly during the Turtle Season. You have the opportunity to see nesting turtles from November through to January and hatchlings January through to March. It is an amazing sight to see the turtles venture up the beach to find a safe spot to dig a nest and lay their eggs. And then, if you are lucky, to come back six to eight weeks later to see the baby hatchlings take their first swim in the ocean. Don’t miss out, book now!

Bookings close promptly at 4pm daily! Book your Mon Repos Nightly Turtle Encounter as soon as possible, to avoid your preferred date not being available.
