A must do! Definitely worthwhile, take insect spray, book ahead if you want to go early, or you might have a late night, still cool though.

Being able to go out with the knowledgeable staff and volunteers was incredible. We were able to see 2 clutches our night and guide the little guys to the ocean which was amazing! They are strong little creatures!

We are driving up from the Sunshine Coast to get to Mon Repos, we will be pushing it to get there in time. Does anyone know how strict they are with late arrivals or 7 is the cut off??

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.
