Mon Repos Turtle Encounter, Bundaberg


Booking in advance is highly recommended! Our tour desk can help with the bookings.

This is a MUST DO! November to March is Turtle Season in Bundaberg. Witness mother turtles laying their eggs during ranger-guided tours at the Mon Repos Turtle Encounter between November and January. Then, from January to March, help create a pathway to the ocean for the baby turtles embarking on their journey through the East Australian Current.

Bargara, Bundaberg is home to the Largest Loggerhead Turtle Rookery in the Southern Hemisphere. Every year hundreds of turtles make their way to Mon Repos Beach to lay their clutches of eggs. After a 6-8 week incubation period the little guys make their way from the sand dunes to the big blue. Queensland Parks and Wildlife Services offer Ranger Guided Tours from November to March for the opportunity to get up close and personal with these magnificent sea creatures.

The 2023/24 Tour Season will operate nightly from 6th of November until the 17th of March. Except: Christmas Eve – 24 December, Christmas Day – 25 December & New Years Eve – 31st December.

You will find detailed information in our Everything you need to know about Turtle Season in Bundaberg blog.
