Mon Repos closure

Issued: 14 March

The Department of Environment and Science (DES) is closing nightly tours at the Mon Repos Turtle Centre in response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.

The closure takes effect after the night tour on Sunday 15 March and will help ensure the safety of staff, visitors and the wider Bundaberg community.

The Mon Repos Turtle Centre will remain open for visitors during the day.

The Queensland Government apologises for any inconvenience but takes the health of the community very seriously and will do all that can be done to minimise the risk of corona virus.

Nightly tours were scheduled to close on March 21, and DES rangers report that hatchling numbers are low as the season comes to an end.

People who have booked tours will receive a full refund.
