PUTTING THE TURTLES FIRST: MON REPOS’ DEDICATION TO SUSTAINABILITY

As the Southern gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, Bundaberg is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the whole world! Those beaches are home to 50% of the South Pacific’s nesting loggerhead turtles. So it’s no surprise that each year 30,000 people flock to Mon Repos to have an up close and personal experience with these amazing sea creatures.

For the surf-averse, going to the beach isn't quite the glorious summer day experience that it is for those happily swimming between the flags. But Australia has some beaches where you don't need to get in the water to have a great time.

Mon Repos Beach, Queensland 14km north-east of Bundaberg, Mon Repos is one of the world's most important nesting sites for loggerhead turtles. Come between November and March, and special ranger-guided tours take you on to the sand to watch the turtle circle of life. Early in the season, mother turtles haul themselves up the beach to give birth. Later on, hundreds of tiny hatchlings fight through the sand and scuttle into the sea. See parks.des.qld.gov.au
