Life’s better on the water…

We are firm believers that — with our hectic lifestyles — it’s important to take the time to get out, explore the world and experience new and exciting things — or reconnect with the things we love. And, frankly, being outside — particularly on the water — is good for the soul!

Here are some experiences from our happy hirers ­— we hope it inspires your next adventure.

New crocodile has a name!
As a perk for long-term volunteers, Billabong Bob has decided they will have the privilege of naming our new animals. Our volunteer for social media has given the name DYNAMO to the croc recently relocated from Saunders Beach, saying “The word is from the Greek for ‘power’, to reflect the awesome strength of these mighty predators”.
She also came up with the name Krakatoa, “one of the most powerful volcanic eruptions in the history of the planet!”
You can visit both crocs from the Jawbridge, near the Semi-arid Desert Habitat.
Don’t miss the exciting feeding shows for all of our crocodilians!

Not all of our passengers are people! Today we transported this cute patient to the loving care of Magnetic Island Network for Turtles who are assisting in rehabilitating sick and injured turtles whilst the Reef HQ Turtle Hospital is closed.
Magnetic Island Network for Turtles are run by volunteers and rely heavily on donations (a turtle in care can cost $30 per day) so if you can assist by donating your cans and bottles for recycling please reach out to them. Currently MINT have 4 turtles in their care! 🐢🐢🐢🐢
