Mon Repos Turtle Centre


Bundaberg’s Mon Repos beach has become synonymous with turtles and one of the best ways to understand these beautiful animals is to visit the Mon Repos Turtle Centre, about 14km from the CBD. Learn about how turtles are drawn back to this significant site every year to lay their eggs and then, how a few months later, the hatchlings make the perilous journey towards the ocean.

Join a ranger on a guided tour to watch nesting turtles between November and January and the babies hatch between January and March. These strictly-guided tours start at 7.00pm where you will be allocated a turtle encounter group for the evening. While rangers scour the beach for turtles, view displays, shows and videos before beginning your beach experience.
