Description

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.
