    Have been 4-5 times have seen laying and hatching depending on which month.But have seen both on same night in middle of season can be a long night and take a jacket as it can get cool. It’s a great thing to do with the kids or visitors and will be doing it again this coming season with friends from wales can’t wait

    Waiting 4-5 hrs, being the last group, too many people in each groups.... could be organized much better to ensure that on the night people get a fair chance of being close to the action. Some groups were on the beach for over an hour having enjoyed hatchlings coming to the surface and travelling to the waters, nesting and helping out with relocating eggs.... other groups not so fortunate to any such experiences....

    A fascinating beach that changes so much as you walk it. Starting as golden sand at one end, moving through to shellgrit then pebbles and finally volcanic rock. Beautiful.

Mon Repos Conservation Park is a quiet coastal oasis close to the city of Bundaberg. Here visitors can enjoy the walking and cycling tracks and explore the coastal environment.

For turtle conservation, Mon Repos is a globally-significant site that supports the largest concentration of nesting marine turtles on the eastern Australian mainland; and the most significant loggerhead turtle nesting population in the South Pacific region. The success of the loggerhead nesting and hatching turtles at Mon Repos is critical for the survival of this endangered species.

Throughout the year the Mon Repos Turtle Centre is a hub for visitors and marine turtle conservation. From November to March, visitors can see nesting and hatching turtles on the beach at night.

Location

On the Woongarra coast, 14km east of Bundaberg.
