    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.

    Our family has visited a couple of times and greatly enjoyed the experience both times, a very worthwhile bucket list item! Be patient when on the beach with your group as you wait for turtles to emerge from the water, this is nature unfolding before you, not just an App you click on for instant gratification. We admire what Mon Repos is doing to conserve these beautiful creatures and will most definitely visit again.

    The experience with the turtles was great. However there was way too many people in each group. That really spoilt the whole night. Otherwise I was very happy with my experience. Would of been happier to pay a bit extra if it meant the group wasn't as large

Mon Repos is all about turtles, right? Yes and no. It is home to some of the most amazing turtle experiences on offer, but it also boasts great ‘beachy’ outdoor fun with a dash of intriguing history thrown in. Photo credit: © Queensland Government
