Vehicle access changes at Mon Repos Conservation Park

This alert applies to the following parks:

Vehicle access to Mon Repos Conservation Park has changed due to construction work. Rookery Road will be closed to vehicles until mid 2019. The road is in use by construction vehicles and heavy machinery. The Mon Repos Turtle Centre, Turtle Trail and walking tracks will remain open throughout this period.

  • Car parking is available outside the conservation park.
  • The current Turtle Centre is still open during the day for visitors and can be reached by walking or cycling from the conservation park entrances. If you are travelling by car, follow the signs to the car park at the end of Moores Road—this is the easiest access.
  • Turtle centre access:
  • From Moores Road car park—park and walk (approximately 10mins) or bike in along the bitumen Turtle trail.
  • From Bargara and Neilson Park via Turtle trail—walk (approximately 15 minutes along a firm, sandy track) or bike in (along the Turtle trail).
  • If you are mobility impaired, please plan ahead and ring 4159 1652 to discuss the best access options with Rangers.
  • Walking and bike tracks through Mon Repos Conservation Park will remain open during daylight hours (between dawn and dusk) but watch out for signs indicating temporary route changes.
  • For their own safety, cyclists should take care on the Rookery Road section of the Turtle Trail and be aware of construction traffic in this area. Due to soft road edges it is recommended that if required, cyclists dismount before leaving the bitumen surface.
  • The Turtle Centre is open Monday to Friday between 8.00am-3.30pm.
