Hartley's Lagoon - Hartley's Crocodile Adventures.

There is a trend within the zoo industry worldwide to construct 'immersion exhibits' where the animals are displayed in surroundings that not only reflect their own habitats but also give viewers the feeling that they are, even for a few moments, a privileged and exclusive witness to a part of their daily lives.

Hartley's Lagoon is at the front rank of this trend. Nowhere else is it possible for visitors to obtain such an intimate insight into the biology and behaviour of crocodiles. Nineteen crocs ranging in size from 2.5m to 5m cruise the waters, laze on the bank or build their nests, interacting with each other just as they would in the wild as well as keeping all the other residents of the lagoon on their toes!

The lagoon is not designed just to show off the crocs. In keeping with the park's objectives, the lagoon cruise gives visitors a unique opportunity to appreciate the capabilities of crocodiles and to understand their importance in the wetland community and the role that the wetlands themselves play within the coastal landscapes of northern Queensland.
