Overview

Visitors to the festival can get a rare glimpse of hatching turtles in their incubation chambers and the first moments of their lives as they meet a seawater environment in specially designed tanks. At the close of the exhibition the newborn turtles will be transported to the Sunshine Coast and released 20 km offshore.

This important conservation initiative is designed in collaboration with internationally renowned herpetologist Colin Limpus and Queensland Museum Senior Curator of Reptiles and Amphibians, Patrick Couper.
