About this hike

This hike along the coast between Mon Repos and Burnett Heads follows the turtle trail as it takes you through the conservation park. The site of the multipurpose trail is an important nesting area for the Loggerhead Turtle and during some month of the year guided night-time walks can be taken to witness the nesting and hatching of the baby turtles.
