Mon - Repos Turtle Beach

Mon - Repos Turtle Beach

Only a couple of kilometres north of Bargara, Mon Repos is famous as the largest and most accessible turtle rookery in mainland Australia. During the day, Mon Repos is popular for swimming and sailing; however, the turtle nests must be taken into account. No dogs are allowed on the beach and beach umbrellas should not be used above the high water mark as they may damage the eggs.
