The current closure of the Turtle Trail in Mon Repos Conservation Park will be extended up to Friday, 13 December 2019.
Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) says this is due to roadworks on Rookery Road and the need to ensure the safety of park users.
Bike riders from the Burnett Heads will be able to ride along the Turtle Trail to the new centre from 4 November onwards.
Bike riders from Bargara will only have access as far as Mon Repos Road until 13 December.
Bike riders can choose to detour around the conservation park via Mon Repos Road, Mittlehauser Road and Moores Road.
QPWS will update park alerts on the DES website and update signage on the ground.
The new Turtle Centre opens for night time Turtle Encounter tours on 9 November, and opens for day visitation on Monday, 18 November 2019. Visit here for bookings.
Every year, from November to March, you can join QPWS Rangers at Mon Repos Turtle Centre on a guided tour to watch nesting (November to January) and hatching (January to March) marine turtles.
To protect nesting and hatching turtles, only turtle encounter tour participants are allowed on Mon Repos beach after 6pm to witness this incredible natural journey.
Day access to the centre will be via Moores Road car park and walking along a sealed track to the centre.
