About this place
Jurabi Turtle Centre is open year round. Take a walk through the interpretive displays and discover the marine turtles found along the Ningaloo Coast. Learn about their lifecycle, the threats they face and how to view mating and nesting turtles and turtle hatchlings in the natural environment.
From December through to early March join a guided Turtle Eco-Education tour and scout for female turtles making their way on to the beach to lay their eggs. Towards the end of the season you may even be lucky enough to encounter turtle hatchlings as they emerge from their nest, making their way to the ocean to start their long journey to adulthood.
Guided Turtle Eco-Education tours increase the chance of finding and observing nesting female turtles in the natural environment. Viewing nesting female turtles and hatchlings with a guide minimises your chance of disturbing them which will increase the chance of female turtles successfully laying eggs.
To join a Turtle Eco-Education Tour (December to March) book online or call the Ningaloo Visitor Centre.
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
