Milbi @ Mon Repos
Join us for the official launch of the turtle season!
Mon Repos supports the largest concentration of nesting marine turtles on the eastern Australian mainland and is home to the most significant loggerhead turtle nesting population in the South Pacific region.
Drawing inspiration from the local landscape and cultural heritage of the Bundaberg region, onlookers will also be treated to Fashions by the Sea. Presented by the Marnock Sisters, this fashion show features exclusive Indigenous textile designs that reflect the connections to land, sea and culture.
Celebrate the beginning of our turtle season with First Nations performances, entertainment and light refreshments as we showcase the importance of the Milbi to our First Nations People and how the Mon Repos Turtle Centre and local community are integral to the conservation of the incredible marine species.
