Every year at the beginning of summer, the majestic Loggerhead Turtles journey to Mon Repos Conservation Park near Bundaberg to nest and soon after thousands of hatching turtles emerge from the sands. From January through til late March, tiny hatchlings can be seen taking their first flips toward the shore. Hundreds of tiny footprints linking the sand dunes to the sea are a tell-tale sign of the turtle hatchlings. Witnessing this rare sight — a once a year dash to the water’s edge — is one of Queensland’s top animal encounters that you can experience in the Bundaberg region.

To celebrate this annual pilgrimage, our two Bundaberg properties are offering a unique Turtle Experience package – contact us direct, book any room and we’ll include two delicious hot breakfasts for you to enjoy with our compliments.
