Bargara, situated in the southern-most region of the Great Barrier Reef, offers a unique opportunity to intimately connect with resident turtles and manta rays, allowing you to truly immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty of the world's largest living organism. Moreover, it boasts the largest Turtle Rookery in the South Pacific, making it a haven for these magnificent creatures. Don't miss the incredible Mon Repos Turtle Encounter, held annually from November to March, where you can witness the awe-inspiring sight of mother turtles laying their eggs (November to January) and the adorable hatchlings emerging (January to March).
We absolutely loved this place and planning when we can go back already. The location is amazing - the gentleman we spoke with on arrival was fantastic . You literally are right on the beach !! Perfection .
The views each morning overlooking Kellys Beach was sublime. The two flights of stairs were a good workout! Its a short walk from the main area, close to a swimming lagoon, but being absolute beachfront is the winner. The cheeky Bundy Rum (from the Distillery in town hahaha) on the deck of an evening, basking in the warm salty air made this getaway amazing.
This is a great location. Right on the beach front at Bargara which is perfect for either a couple or family. Shame the Austar was broken ??? The only word of advice check parking as the car park was being renovated. No major issue. Read less
Mon Repos is just a few minutes drive from Bargara and is home to one of nature’s most wondrous experiences. The area supports the largest concentration of nesting marine turtles on the eastern Australian mainland and is the most significant loggerhead turtle nesting population in the South Pacific Ocean region.
