SEEING THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WHITSUNDAY ISLANDS ON A CROCODILE SAFARI
We were driving through the Goorganga Wetlands in a tractor train as part of the Whitsunday Crocodile Safari tour.
It’s thriving ecosystem that many forget to experience, so fixated are they on the coral and sea life of the reef.
We saw hundreds of baby crocs sitting on the edge of the water on the muddy banks, sunning themselves on logs, or scurrying into the water at the sound of our approach.
The mangrove forests are essential for the health of the reef. They trap sediments and absorb extra nutrients, and their complex root systems filter the water before it moves out into the ocean.
I don’t think you can fully appreciate the reef until you spend time understanding one of the reasons it’s so damn magical
