Mon Repos Conservation Park is the largest loggerhead turtle rockery in the South Pacific. From November to March, visitors to Mon Repos can witness one of nature's most fascinating spectacles — the annual pilgrimage of sea turtles. Adult turtles come ashore to lay eggs on Mon Repos beach. About eight weeks later young sea turtles hatch and race to the sea.
