- Day 1 : Turtle Discovery TourLet us take you on a journey to the Largest Loggerhead Turtle Rookery on the East Coast of Australia, the world famous Mon Repos Turtle Centre. This up close encounter with these majestic animals in the wild is unrivaled. As the sun begins to set, the excitement grows as we gather at the entrance of the turtle centre while the volunteers and Rangers scour the beaches for sightings of turtle activity; a signal that our first Turtle Encounter is about to begin. Ranger presentations, slideshows and activities for the kids take place throughout the evening as you wait for your turn to witness the amazing turtle action on the beach. When a turtle is spotted the highlight begins with a Ranger Guided Turtle Encounter allowing you the chance to witness these majestic turtles up close and personal, watch them heaving their huge bodies ashore to lay eggs or experience the miracle of life, as tiny turtle hatchlings erupt in a rush to the waters edge. Return transport to accommodation in Agnes Water is also included.Meals :None
