Mon Repos Turtle Centre

Bundaberg, Bundaberg Area

At the Mon Repos Turtle Centre near Bundaberg, witness an ancient life cycle of the animal kingdom as majestic sea turtles make their journey from sea to shore to lay their eggs. Then delight at the sight of their young, hatching months later, and making their perilous journey to the sea.

Mon Repos Conservation Park supports the largest concentration of nesting marine turtles on the eastern Australian mainland. At the Mon Repos Turtle Centre you can learn all about these extraordinary animals and the conservation and research programs that are protecting them, and even have a turtle encounter like very few others in the world.

Every year, from November to March, you can join Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service rangers at the Mon Repos Turtle Centre on a guided tour to watch nesting (November to January) and hatching (January to March) marine turtles. Mon Repos Turtle Encounters offer a unique opportunity for you to catch a glimpse of a turtle's world-at least for one night! Don't miss your chance to be part of this special experience.

'Connect with Nature' activities such as ranger-guided walks and turtle talks are also offered during some school holidays at the Mon Repos Turtle Centre.
