Ningaloo Reef and adjacent islands are one of the world's major breeding areas for sea turtles.
During the breeding season between December and March, Green and Loggerhead turtles make their way up the beaches to lay their eggs.
If you would like to view nesting marine turtles it is recommended that you visit the Jurabi Turtle Centre. Night tours provide the opportunity to watch the turtles make their long arduous journey up the beaches to lay their eggs or to watch the hatchlings scramble down to the water's edge. By participating in a turtle viewing educational session, you are actively helping to conserve marine turtles and will have a better opportunity to view marine turtles nesting in the natural environment. Please ensure you read the Turtle Watchers’ Code of Conduct provided by the Jurabi Turtle Centre prior to heading to the beaches.
For further information please visit or contact Jurabi Turtle Centre.
The turtle nesting season is between December and March
