In the episode preview the Channel 10 presenter goes for a dive and receives an up-close encounter with some of the island’s breathtaking sea turtles.

“Lady Elliot is regarded as one of the best diving and snorkelling spots in the world – and it’s pretty easy to see why,” Dr Chris said.

“These two magnificent creatures are female green sea turtles, most likely to have returned to nest all the way from feeding grounds across the Pacific.

“They are one of the largest sea turtles in the world growing over a metre long and weighing up to 180kg … simply amazing.”

The Living Room’s Easter special airs on Channel 10 on Friday, March 2 at 7.30pm.
