Every now and then you stumble across one of natures wonderful experiences. We had to stay up very late at night, there were many hour long delays, and in the end the kids were crying. We were at Mon Repos in late January, Bundaberg Queensland. That means TURTLES!!!! We were so lucky to see baby turtles hatching and cruising down the beach. The crying came from Erin, tears of joy about how cute they were. I was amazed at how strong there little flippers are. I highly recommend going for a look. We stayed at the local Girl Guides Huts and Mon Repos Beach was a short walk from there.

Bundaberg has an AMAZING cycling path that follows the coast line from the beach to a really cool lighthouse at Burnett Heads. Being a dedicated Bike/Walking path, it is totally safe, great for kids of any age and connects different parts of Bundi. We traveled on it over a couple of days. North to the light house brought us to a patrolled beach approximation half way along the ride. South led us to a developed area with icecream, units, shops and a rock edged salt water pool, filled with fish. Take your snorkeling gear, the fish are quite friendly.
