    Very interesting displays and film presentations. Strong focus and education. Well worth a visit.

    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.

    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....

Be inspired: No turtles? No problem. Mon Repos has plenty to offer outside turtle nesting season!

Marine turtles return to Mon Repos beach every summer to breed, but in winter and spring, Mon Repos beach lies quietly in wait for the next turtle season. During this time (May to September), there are many reasons to visit Mon Repos. Photo credit: Robert Ashdown © Queensland Government
