I know just the place: Cathy Gatley, Mon Repos Conservation Park, Bundaberg
Bundaberg is just the place between November and March to witness a miracle that takes place nightly on the shores of Mon Repos beach. It is the place where over 50% of the entire concentration of nesting Loggerhead turtles in the Southern Hemisphere comes to lay their eggs. These mumma turtles were born here as long as 80 years ago, hatched from a nest with roughly 100 siblings and made a scramble for the ocean. They survived the 1 in 1000 odds of surviving to maturity and now they use the Earth’s magnetic field as an internal GPS to find their way back home and repeat the cycle.
