Mon Repos Turtle Centre, Mon Repos Conservation Park

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Opening hours: 9am to 12pm, seven days a week.

Please visit the website or contact the business for everything you need to know before you visit.

No visit to Mon Repos is complete without a stop at the turtle centre. Here you’ll learn heaps about marine turtles, and the conservation and research programs that are protecting them. You’ll also find out how a colourful history and ancient connections have shaped the Mon Repos you see today.

Have a picnic at the shady tables before you head off to explore the rest of the park.

Every year, from November to March, join expert Park Rangers for a rare and wonderful experience with endangered marine turtles (bookings and fees apply). See nesting (November–January) or hatching (January–March) sea turtles. Gather around a majestic female as she lays her eggs, or watch young hatchlings dig free and hustle down the beach. No-one else is allowed on the beach at these times and the popular tours have limited places. Don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Please note the Mon Repos Turtle Encounter tour runs from 7pm-2am. Ticket bookings will close at 4pm each night for that night’s tour.
