Turtle tourism – The new economic driver of Australia

Published on : Saturday, December 8, 2018

The magnificent turtles that are seen swimming in the east coast of the Australian oceans can grow to be two meters in length and weigh around an astounding 900 kilograms, which is almost 2000 pounds. However, their endearing offspring weigh a mere few ounces at the time when they hatch and are small enough to fit inside a teacup.

 

Every year, starting right from January to March, these baby turtles are seen at few beaches at the length of the Queensland coast in northern Australia. They are seen burrowing out of sand-covered holes where the mother turtle had laid their eggs a couple of months before. When these baby turtles reach the surface, they hurry to reach towards the ocean to start a life of swimming as well as adventure.

 

The four tranquil beaches mentioned below have turned to be the hotspot for the youngsters in action along the coast, making turtle tourism a new driver for the Australian tourism economy.

 

Green Island & Fitzroy Island, Lady Elliot Island, Heron Island and Mon Repos Beach are some of the popular beaches and islands where turtle tourism have become immensely popular and is helping in drive the economy of the region in a tremendous manner.
