Forget David Attenborough and his over-edited TV documentaries, there’s a real-life National Geographic scene taking place off the east coast of Queensland.

Thousands of baby turtles have started muscling their way out of their sandy nests and making a nightly dash for the warm waters off Mon Repos beach near Bundaberg.

It’s one of Australia’s greatest conservation and educational experiences and definitely a must do on any nature-lover’s bucket list. The shelled stars of the show are performing from now until March, so don’t miss your chance to get a front row seat to all the turtle-y awesome action!

Instagram star Lauren Bath recently ventured to Mon Repos and captured some of the little dudes’ first steps.
