Who Are We

Hello, first of all let us welcome you to our world, and thankyou for taking the time to explore the possibility of owning an Australian Freshwater Turtle. Turtles make a wonderful pet and are our favourite past time. If you couldn't tell already, we LOVE Turtles!

Our History

Here at Turtles R Us

Welcome to Turtles R Us, where keeping and breeding turtles is not just a passion, but a way of life!
For almost two decades, we have been committed to the care and wellbeing of these wonderful creatures. In fact, we have spent the last 7 years dedicating ourselves to breeding turtles, which has allowed us to gain an unparalleled understanding of their unique needs and behaviors.
Our passion for turtles runs deep, and we firmly believe that keeping them is more than just a hobby; it is a lifestyle! We take great pride in the fact that we are a family-run business and that our turtles are part of our extended family. We understand that every turtle is unique, with their own personality and specific needs, which is why we are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for each and every one of our turtles.
Arthur is the backbone of our operation, taking care of the adult turtles with utmost dedication. He spends countless hours building their ponds, feeding them, pairing them up for breeding, and carefully harvesting their eggs. Debbie, on the other hand, is responsible for the hatchlings, ensuring that they receive the proper care and attention from the moment they emerge from their shells to the time they leave us for their new homes.
Our passion and dedication do not end with just feeding and caring for our turtles. We are constantly observing and studying them, making sure that we are providing the best possible environment for them to thrive. Arthur can often be found waist-deep in our ponds, meticulously removing any debris that may affect the water quality. It is this level of dedication and attention to detail that has made our breeding program such a success.
Watching a turtle emerge from its egg and take its first steps into the world is a truly magical experience, one that we never tire of witnessing. It is a reward that fills our hearts with joy and reinforces our commitment to these incredible animals.
We are proud of what we do, and we hope that our passion for turtles shines through in everything we do. Whether you are a seasoned turtle keeper or just starting out, we are here to share our knowledge and experience with you. So, come join our turtle family and experience the joy and wonder that these amazing creatures can bring into your life!

Debbie and Arther Weeding are the most professional and honest turtle breeders with an amazing new breeding facility. Highly recommend them.

I have known Debbie and Arthur for close to a decade. Throughout this time I have watched as they continually strive to provide the best possible conditions for all their turtles. You can literally drink the water the turtles swim in and I know the turtles receive a balanced and varied diet. Adults, juveniles and hatchlings are not released for rehoming until they are confident the animals are feeding well and are in peak condition. These are the best quality animals available. I love that Debbie and Arthur want new owners to care for their animals, so make themselves available to answer any questions you may have about the turtle’s care. I have absolutely no reservations about recommending Turtles-R-Us to anyone wanting a turtle.
