If you had time to visit at the right time and don't expect turtles to come up and greet you this could be a highlight of a trip to Exmouth. The information is good and I wish I was there at the right time. To see wildlife in its natural nesting habitat is a privilege and considering turtles ratio of... More

Quite idyllic - a long, beautiful beach with the sound of the sea in the background, in a peaceful, unspoilt location. We didn't see any turtles but that, of course, can never be guaranteed. A boardwalk led down from the car park to the beach, with occasional signs reminding people how to behave around the turtles. On the way down... More

This was a wonderful centre of information regarding the Turtles. There's a lot of simple to read information designed to educate people and prevent the destruction of their nests and life cycle. While I did not see any nesting or hatching, I was able to see fresh tracks up the beach. My recommendations to anybody wanting to see them in... More

Jurabi is at the north end of a long beach with turtle nests during the hatching season. The signboards are helpful and a good boardwalk takes you over the dunes to the edge of the beach. We saw both an egg-laying female and hatchlings during the season.

A great informative display and also explains what to do if wanting to watch the turtles laying eggs or hatching. It is payed out in an easy to read format using words and signs . Unfortunately not all visitors bother reading before embarking on the turtle quest. We had the privilege of watching a turtle come in from the sea... More

This a good information centre which offers some shade from the heat of the day. Good parking and good views along the beach.

More than i expected! Learnt lots of useful information and headed to the beach and actually saw turtles swimming around. With little effort was able to make out tracks on the sand where turtles had very recently laid their eggs. It was amazing to see and appreciate the lifecycle events as explained in the info booth. All very nicely done.

The Jurabi Turtle Centre provides a nice set of information about the life of turtles, and indeed is on a beach that hosts female turtles laying eggs in the Australian summer. However flies are abundant here (at least in late October), so you'll have to read quickly, or be eaten alive.

We recently visited the Jurabi Turtle Centre near Exmouth and it is a great place to learn about the turtles, their habitat and their breeding habits. The centre is also in the shape of a turtle which is fun. Good information presented there about all of it and we will have to come back in turtle hook up season so... More
