Mon Repos

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.
