Time with Turtles

The World Heritage Listed Ningaloo Reef is also home to several species of turtle, which breed each year along the reef and beaches.

Between December and February, Green, Loggerhead, Hawksbill and Flatback turtles mate before dragging themselves ashore to lay eggs and write another chapter in nature's fascinating epic.

Visitors can view the egg-laying and hatching, while participating in environmental programs to help re-establish their breeding colonies.
