3-Night Summer Getaway

The price of $767 per person is based on a 3-night stay for 2 Adults.
This offer is only available for travel during Bundaberg Turtle Season (7 November 2022 - 19 March 2023 excluding nights 24, 25 and 31 December). 

Make your summer one to remember with this scenic 3-Night Summer Getaway, where we’ve taken the hassle out of the planning and tailor-made the ultimate turtle to reef escape.

Your holiday begins with a 30min scenic flight to paradise, also known as Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort, and the start of the Great Barrier Reef. Nestled off Bundaberg's coastline, this southern coral cay is known for being the home of the manta ray and a haven for more than 1,200 species of marine life that frequent the surrounding plankton-rich waters year-round. Immerse yourself in a day exploring the wonders of the reef with guided marine walks, snorkel safaris, glass-bottom boat tours, island explorations, and spend some time at your own leisure soaking up the breathtaking coral lagoon. Don your snorkel and slip on your flippers before submerging yourself into an underwater playground, swimming alongside curious turtles and tropical reef fish. Once you've unleashed your inner Sir David Attenborough, enjoy these last moments of tranquillity before taking flight and saying 'see you later' leaving with memories to last a lifetime. 

With turtle season in full swing, after snorkelling alongside those big mother turtles on the reef, continue your turtle-y awesome holiday with a Mon Repos Nightly Turtle Encounter. Each year between November to March under the cover of darkness, a 5km stretch of sandy beach on the shore of Bundaberg comes alive at night, known as Mon Repos Beach. Home to the only ranger-guided turtle encounter on the Australian East Coast, take a peek behind the curtain of an ancient old ritual and watch as mother turtles haul themselves up sandy dunes from November to January and nest their clutches of eggs. From late January to late March, witness baby turtles erupt from the sand and make the mad dash towards the sea where only 1 in 1000 will survive the odds to maturity. An experience unlike any other, immerse yourself in a turtles life journey and learn about the critical research of the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Mon Repos Turtle Rangers. 

Make yourself at home in a 1-Bedroom Deluxe Queen Room with Villa Mirasol Motor Inn. Centrally located, enjoy the convenience of having boutique shops, heritage-laced buildings, delicious cafes and restaurants that boast local produce, and sweeping river views all within reach with just a short walk or drive.
