Mon Repos Regional Park

Bundaberg, Bundaberg Area
Free Entry
Mon Repos Regional Park, a quiet coastal oasis near Bundaberg, is special! The beach 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 region. Their nesting and hatching success here at Mon Repos is critical for their survival. At this globally-significant site you can learn about these extraordinary animals - a visit to Mon Repos Turtle Centre offers a turtle encounter like very few others in the world. Mon Repos also features Woongarra rainforest scrub, the site of Bert Hinkler's first glider flights, a tidal lagoon, rock pools and an historic basalt stone wall built by South Sea Islanders, who were brought to Queensland from the 1880s to work in the sugar industry. Explore the park on walking tracks and cycling tracks or, if you prefer a slower pace, take a wander along the beach to look at tidal rock pools. Entry to Mon Repos Regional Park is free. Fees apply for night access to the Mon Repos Turtle Centre and Mon Repos Turtle Encounters during turtle season (November to March). See Mon Repos Turtle Centre listing for admission and booking details.

Port Bundaberg

Burnett Heads, Bundaberg Area
The Burnett River flows out to sea at Burnett Heads, and just upstream is the Port of Bundaberg with its wharves and imposing sugar terminal. Here, the broad reaches of the Burnett are home to the Bundaberg Sailing Club, and as expected, there are boat ramps and car and trailer parking at the river mouth. Recognised by the National Trust as an important part of Australia's maritime history, the old Burnett Heads Lighthouse (c.1873) stands testament to a bygone era. When the lighthouse was taken out of service in 1972, it was moved to its present site next to the Burnett Heads Hall.

Mon Repos

Mon Repos, Bundaberg Area
Mon Repos (meaning My Rest) embodies a diverse and interesting array of historical, environmental and leisure activities of the Bundaberg region all in this one stretch of secluded beach - no wonder the turtles love it here! Mon Repos has the largest concentration of nesting marine turtles on the Eastern Australian Mainland which occurs from November to March annually - visitors can witness a mother making her way up the beach to lay a clutch of eggs or from January to March, the hatchlings taking their first breath and scurrying down into the wide blue yonder. During the day Mon Repos is popular for swimming, sailing and beachside picnics, although pooches aren't welcome due to the fragile nature of the natural environment for turtles. The beach is open from 6am to 6pm during turtle season and then after dark by turtle tour with the experienced ranges of the Mon Repos Conservation Park. If you are a bit of a history buff then Mon Repos is where Bert Hinkler undertook some of his first historic glider flights and the Kanaka wall is a testament to the hard work of Melanesians from the South Pacific Islands who were indentured to work in the Queensland canefields from 1879 to 1904 moving volcanic rock from the region into packed rock walls which can be seen all over the regions coastline.
