Turtles – Heron Island, Queensland
Heading to the tropical beauty of Heron Island for Turtle Season in the Great Barrier Reef, Kayne and Brandon find themselves face-to-face with a beach full of Green Turtle hatchlings. But it’s a life or death race, as the baby turtles have to navigate their way to the water with their natural predators waiting on all sides. The journey continues, as the boys strap on oxygen tanks and dive to the depths of the reef, getting up close and personal with the adult turtles as well. Feeling the urge to get a ‘birds eye view’ of the area, Brandon and Kayne take to the sky ‘jungle surfing’, where the rainforest meets the Great Barrier Reef.

WEDNESDAY: My Place – Series 2, 10.10AM on ABC ME
Dan is on his second patrol to the Botany Bay area, when he’s asked to capture a native dog to take back to the colony’s Governor. Only trouble is, the dog in question – Lapa – belongs to Waruwi, the girl Dan befriended last time he was in the area. Dan protests that it’s stealing, but his commander overrules his objection and orders him to stand guard over the dog. At first, Dan thinks he can pay Waruwi for her dog, but when he sees that all she wants is Lapa back, he decides to disobey orders and return the dog to her. Now, Dan is caught in a trap: he can’t stay with Waruwi and he can’t go back - unless he wants to be flogged for disobedience.
