9 November 2019, 12am to 22 March 2020, 12am
The 2019/20 turtle season runs early November 2019 to late March 2020.
Mon Repos Turtle Encounter is the only ranger-guided turtle encounter available on the east-coast and is instrumental in the research into turtle conservation, specifically the endangered Loggerhead turtles that frequent this beach.
Take an unrivalled peak behind the curtain of natural wonder thousands of years in the making at Mon Repos Conservation Park. Watch as mother turtles lay their clutches of eggs from November – January on a ranger-guided Mon Repos Turtle Encounter. In January to March form a pathway to the ocean for the baby turtles as they begin their dangerous journey into adolescence with only 1 in 1000 turtles making it to maturity. Come witness a miracle on a Mon Repos Turtle Encounter and create memories to last a lifetime.
