Marine turtles and their ancestors have been around since before the dinosaurs – that’s almost 100 million years! They survived asteroids that wiped out the dinosaurs, the evolution of mammals and the ice ages. Whether you find them hiding under ledges, camouflaged against corals, floating along the reef flat or munching on a jellyfish, the Southern Great Barrier Reef is one of the best destinations for some unforgettable encounters with these ancient creatures.
