Description

The Ningaloo Coast is one of the most important coastal habitats for turtles. Here you will find turtles mating in the shallow lagoon, female turtles coming ashore to lay eggs and turtle hatchlings making their way to the ocean. The Western Australian Parks and Wildlife Service conducts evening guided turtle eco-education tours from the Jurabi Turtle Centre for people wanting to view turtle hatchlings emerging from the nest and making their way to the ocean. Tours operate during February and March.
Turtle Eco-Education Tours are educational tours that not only provide a high chance of finding and observing turtle hatchlings emerging from the nest and making their way to the ocean and nesting turtles coming ashore to lay their eggs, but also teaches participants how to do so in an unobtrusive manner. By participating in one of these very affordable guided tours, you are actively helping to conserve marine turtle populations and will have a better opportunity to view turtle hatchlings and turtle nesting activities in the natural environment.
During the tour you will be guided by staff who will explain more about Ningaloo marine turtles and the environment they occupy, all the while looking for turtle hatchlings emerging from their nest making their way to the ocean. You may also be lucky enough to witness female turtles making the arduous haul up the beach and into the sand dunes to lay eggs.
Meet at Jurabi Turtle Centre at 6:pm for briefing & then drive in your own vehicle to a beach nearby.
JURABI TURTLE CENTRE is located on Yardie Creek Road approx 500m past the Lighthouse Caravan Park on the right hand side.

Informative Spot
This was cool to be able to independently visit and learn so much about turtles and then having the chance to see and snorkel with turtles whilst on our stay (not at the spot where Jubali Turtle Centre is). I imagine that this is a popular stop for school tours and camps with lots of interesting facts to learn about turtles.

Interesting self guided turtle information centre. If you didn't know a thing about turtles before coming here you will definitely leave learning something.... Go educate yourself
