A part of the Reef HQ Great Barrier Reef Aquarium, the Turtle Hospital conserves, acts and rehabilitates the injured and sick Marine Turtles and educates its visitors about it. Here at the dedicated facility, you will get to see the elusive turtles that are near threatened due to the nonsensical behaviour of the mankind. Opened in 2009 under the supervision of the then Environment Protection Minister Peter Garrett, the Turtle Hospital has since been growing rapidly and has been able to protect and rehabilitate a number of turtles back to see. You will get to know about the measures taken by the officials here and also understand about the factors that threaten the lives of the turtle.
