I believe Lady Elliot Island and Mon Repos are two of the prime turtle spots - depending on the time of year.

Yep, Low Isles out of Port Douglas for turtles. Ditto for Green Island, out of Cairns.

heaps of turtles at Low Isles- far less people visit low isles daily than Green Island... some outer reef operators visit sites called Turtle Bay...Im thinking that there is a good chance that there may be turtles there too!

Lots of turtles everywhere. Green ones on the reef and brown ones in the lakes and swimming holes. Turtles everyhwere. Little ones, big ones, fat ones and skinny ones.
