The Turtles are coming to Heron Island!
It is time to dust the sand off the welcome mat in preparation for the arrival of hundreds of sea turtles who return to Heron Island year after year for their annual breeding and nesting season.
Although you can swim with turtles year-round at Heron Island, from late October to early March, Giant Green and endangered Loggerhead sea turtles return on the high tide to nest in the dunes. Then from December to April, be enthralled by hatchlings as they begin to erupt from their nests to start their circle of life.
To be part of this magical experience take advantage of our Turtle Package, which allows you to view the turtles in the water, through an underwater window or with a glass of wine in your hand. The choice is yours!
Pricing is based on accommodation chosen and includes:
- Accommodation with full breakfast daily
- Snorkelling equipment hire (mask, snorkel, flippers)
- A $100 Marine Centre Voucher - which can be used towards a tour of your choice, including a Snorkel Tour, I-Spy Semi-Submersible Tour or Sunset Cruise
- Turtle Tours with qualified naturalist guides
- Lean more at the Evening Turtle Presentations
