About Bathurst Turtles

Pet Turtles Breeder Bathurst

At Bathurst Turtles we breed Eastern Long Neck and Murray River Short Neck Turtles. We have baby turtles for sale most of the year and will deliver to Sydney Merto area.

Australian Fresh Water Turtles are extremely fascinating and interactive animals. And one of the easiest pets to keep.

The majority of turtles kept in captivity are Murray River Short-Necked Turtles and Eastern Snake-Necked or Long-Necked Turtles.

Baby turtles or hatchlings are often referred to as Penny Turtles.

Turtles will slowly grow to 30cm, it takes them 12 years to mature.

Well cared for turtles will live for 40 years or more in captivity.

Bathurst Turtles for Pet Turtle Lovers!

Feed your turtle once per day, a piece of food the size of it's head, until it's 12 months old.
