How cool to see turtles nesting
Christmas time saw us in the Bundaberg region. Of course we had to visit Mons Repos Beach and check out the spot where Bert Hinkler used to land his plane.

Bert pioneered the first solo flight from England to Australia and the worlds first solo flight across the South Atlantic in 1931.

Mons Repos Beach is absolutely beautiful with board walks through the Mango Grove leading to many of the turtle nests dotted along the beach.

Renown for turtle hatching, the turtles will come up the beach at night to nest, though we were very blessed to see this during daytime.

Mons Repos has a turtle information centre which I found very interesting. They also have Turtle Hatching Tours which will take you on a night time trip along the board walk through the mangroves to the beach where the wee turtles are hatching. Unfortunately I did not take this tour but will next time.

Mons Repos Conservation Park is 14 kilometres east of Bundaberg. While the beach is a surf beach it does have swim between the flags.

I also managed to collect some pretty lovely shells along the beach.
