The Basin
• Located at the northern end of Kelly’s Beach, the Basin is a calm water beach created by the construction of a wall of basalt rocks. It was built by the Kanaka settlers, who worked the canefields of Bundaberg in the 1880s.
Mon Repos Conservation Park
• Freecall: 1800 072 110 (within Australia)
• Mon Repos supports the largest concentration of nesting sea turtles on the east Australian mainland and is one of the two largest loggerhead turtle rookeries in the south Pacific Ocean region.

From November to March, visitors to Mon Repos can witness the fascinating spectacle of nature's annual pilgrimage of sea turtles. This annual event see the adult turtles come ashore to lay eggs on Mon Repos Beach. Approximately eight weeks later, young sea turtles emerge from the eggs and race to the sea.

The best time to see turtles laying eggs is after dark from mid November to February. Hatchlings usually leave their nests to begin their journey to the sea, at night from mid January until late March. If you visit in January you might be lucky enough to see both adults and hatchlings.

Turtles are easily disturbed from their nesting if correct turtle watching guidelines are not followed. Each year more people visit Mon Repos to watch the turtles. To protect nesting turtles and hatchlings, a limit has been set on the number of people allowed access to the beach each night. Visitors are urged to book ahead to avoid disappointment.
