Mon Repos Beach, home to the largest concentration of nesting loggerhead turtles in the South Pacific, sits on the coast outside Bundaberg, Queensland. Every year from November to March, people flock from all over the world to witness the magic of the loggerheads' nesting, followed by the birth of the tiny hatchlings as they emerge from their sand burrows into the world and on to the Coral Sea.
The Earth’s magnetic fields guide the hatchlings back to their birth site Mon Repos, approximately thirty years after they begin their first journey into the deep ocean - only 1 in 1000 hatchlings will survive to adulthood.
Keep your precious little boy or girl safe in the sun in this limited-edition print, designed in Bargara, a stone's throw from beautiful Mon Repos Beach.
Our swimwear for babies, girls, boys and teens is true to size and corresponds to the age of the child, i.e. an average two year old will fit a size 2, and an average 12 year old will fit a size 12 and so on.
Our kids swimwear doesn’t tend to run small from our experience as parents. If however a child is taller than average or well-built then sizing-up would be recommended i.e. a tall 10 year old would be better off in a size 12 suit / top or shorts. For further details please refer to our sizing information page
We offer peace of mind exchanges and returns so if ever the size you chose wasn’t quite right then you’d be welcome to return it. Please see our returns policy info below.
Kindly note that we don’t offer sizes 5 or 7 in our range; sizing up to size 6 or 8, or down to size 4 or 6 is the norm and isn’t usually an issue.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns, we’re always happy to help!

To ensure longevity of your swimwear, please:
- Rinse immediately after use to clean out salt and chlorine.
- Ideally hand-wash as often as possible as this will ensure longevity of the fabric
(if machine-washing please use a garment bag, cold water & low spin cycle)
- Do not wring, rub, soak or bleach swimwear.
- Dry in the shade – never tumble dry.
- Do not leave rolled up wet or store when damp.
- Do not iron or dry clean.
- Take care when dressing as over-stretched zips risk disconnecting or the plastic teeth may break, as can happen with any zip.
I absolutely love these swimmers. They make changing from a nappy to a swim nappy an absolute breeze!
We absolutely love our swimsuit - it’s such great quality, and the snaps are so innovative. I wasn’t sure how much we would use the snaps, as my son is out of nappies and into toilet training, but it has been a game changer for him for easy access to get to the toilet in time!
The turtle print is so gorgeous, and having the long sleeves means additional sun protection too. Will definitely be buying again.
We absolutely love our swimsuits!! Easily the best quality swimmers I have put on the boys. The thickness is amazing! Especially for blocking out those harsh UV rays! Highly recommend! We also loved the customer service we received :)
I love the little Mon Repos turtle swim suit. It is so gorgeous and extra special for our grandson as my husbane and I enjoy going to Mon Repos Turtle Centre. I hope to get another for our Granddaughter now. Thank you for your bright, colourful and sunsafe selection of children's swim wear.
This is the second time I've purchased these. My sons LOVE them and have grown out of them so we're on to the next size!
My sons have very fair skin, so the protection was super important to me.
They have been worn more times than I can count and are still going strong!
My kids wore these swimmers for over 2 years. Not one issue with them, they still have a good year or two in them as well so last 3-4 years. We've had no fade or stretch, no pulling or pilling. Have handed down to friends children as my children outgrew them. Love them so much.
I am really impressed with the level of support the ladies swimsuit provides, even for a larger cup size, which is so hard to find.
Fantastic to wear for any water activity. I love the sun protection and comfort of the swimsuit while surfing, paddleboarding or just chilling at the beach.

Hi! I’m Emily, mother of 3 little girls and founder of Tribe Tropical.
Growing up I used to dread beach days!
As a red-head with fair skin, growing up in the tropics, I either had to risk being teased by other kids for covering up in a daggy old t-shirt, or end the day sunburnt & in pain.
Having since suffered with countless skin cancer treatments (and further to the loss of my grandfather due to melanoma), I understand the importance of sun protection - I started Tribe Tropical with a desire to protect my family and yours in beautiful, high-quality sun-protective swimwear that people would feel good in & enjoy wearing.
No-one should dread a beach day! I hope to help you to make them fun & burn-free also.
