Turtles are hatching every year from our Agnes Water beaches and Deepwater National Park, which are breeding grounds for Loggerhead turtles. They come to lay their eggs between November to February each year, with the hatchlings making their way back into the ocean from January through April.  A beautiful national park with great rock and beach fishing.
