Turtles nest around Broome around November, December, the November full moon is the peak. Usually a night activity, but you can get lucky & see a turtle nesting towards sunset. Dept Parks & W/life brochure- “ Hatching usually occurs seven to eight weeks after the eggs have been laid. The hatchlings usually emerge between dusk and dawn with the cooling sand acting as a trigger. Under natural conditions only one in a thousand hatchlings survives to adulthood.”
