Home of the Famous Mon Repos Turtles

Queensland's best kept secret: A coastal paradise with 12.5 acres of absolute beachfront parkland catering primarily for group style bookings

Welcome to Turtle Sands Camping and Holiday Park located adjacent to the world famous Mon Repos Turtle Rookery.

Turtle Sands Camping and Holiday Park now caters primarily for group style bookings including, but not limited to, groups of families and friends, school groups and caravan clubs. We can accommodate both large and small group bookings in a range of accommodation styles from unpowered beachfront camping sites, powered camping and caravan sites, and air-conditioned ensuite cabins.

Please be advised that minimal group numbers and minimum night stays apply. As a general rule, bookings of at least 6 sites for a minimum period of 1 week are required. Lesser stay periods however apply for school groups and caravan clubs.

Although we primarily cater for group bookings, should you wish to stay at Turtle Sands during school holiday periods and do not meet the specified minimum group number, feel free to enquire as we may be able to cater for your needs.  Please note that we do not cater for single site bookings or overnight accommodation.

Please register your interest by clicking on the Enquiries tab and completing the relevant details or by emailing bookings@turtlesands.com.au.

Turtle Sands is located approximately 14 km from Bundaberg on beautiful Mon Repos Beach and a short 2 minute walk from the Mon Repos Turtle Rookery.

Mon Repos supports the largest concentration of nesting marine turtles on the eastern Australian mainland and is the most significant loggerhead turtle rookery in the South Pacific. The turtle nesting season runs from November to March and Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service offers nightly talks and guided tours to see turtle nesting (November to January) and turtle hatching (January to March).
