Mon Repos Turtle Encounters - ZEN Beach Retreat

Extraordinary Turtle Encounters

Local Hero & Great Barrier Reef Secret - Mon Repos

Prepare yourself to discover new inner emotions, as you cheer the little hatchlings in their race to the sea for the first time.

November to March every year, Mon Repos (just three beaches up from ZEN Beach Retreat) transforms to the largest turtle nesting and hatchery on the east coast of Australia.

Witness first hand an embryonic new generation as each mother turtle gently rises from the sea with a steely determination to nest, carefully selecting the site where she cannot be disturbed.

At the right timing be up close and personal to a life changing event.

Hear from turtle experts first hand, learning all there is to know on this amazing ancient creature.
