Really interesting, have to say we were glad we were in group 2. Would like to go back when the eggs are hatching, it must be amazing.

This is a must do activity. Plenty of information before the visit to the beach. Rangers are very knowledgeable and manage the tour well. Very memorable night out

We had the most amazing evening. The presentation in the amphitheater was very interesting and informative, but the evening on the beach was just amazing. We saw half a dozen female loggerheads drag themselves up the beach, a couple turned back. We watched a young...More

The Information Centre is very good and has plenty to keep you occupied while you wait for turtles to come up on the beach or hatchling to make their dash to the water. An amazing experience

Great education centre regarding turtle season. Fantastic walk and cycle paths for the energetic. Lovely beach to enjoy during certain hours when it's turtle season.

We had booked about a month in advance for hatching season and were very well rewarded. The night time viewing does have limited numbers.

They start on 7 and if you are not there in time if you are the first group you may be missed, when I was there people were arriving later on etc, but I would try and be there as close to 7 as possible.

Sorry you have to book via their offices in Bundaberg. It says you can book online but we couldn't get it to work. Great event though you'll love it good luck with turtle arrival times.
