Mon Repos

If you didn't know what the fuss was about, you would think Mon Repos is just another beautiful beach in the Bundaberg region, but nestled in the dunes this beach marks a very special, ancient ritual for the oceans most wise mariners.

Mon Repos means "My Rest" but there is no nodding off on the job for the mamma turtles when they come to lay their precious clutches of eggs between November to January.

It will take your breath away seeing a mamma turtle make her way back to her own birthplace, working hard in the dunes to lay her eggs, or between January to March watching a clutch of baby turtles emerge from the sand and take their first dip into the big blue yonder.

Mon Repos is the perfect picnic, sailing or swimming spot, you can also access the Mon Repos walking track easily from the beach. If its turtle season just be aware beach hours are 6am to 6pm with ranger guided tours by night.

It's a secluded and gorgeous beach to be visited year round and if you are a bit of a history buff then Mon Repos is where famous aviator Bert Hinkler undertook some of his first historic glider flights.
The distinctive black volcanic rock wall known as 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.

Mon Repos is the perfect place to play park ranger and retrace turtle tracks from the night before and remember just how important these birthplaces are for returning turtles many years after.
