Snorkel the magnificent Julian Rocks Marine Reserve which is home to 3 different species of sea turtle, a variety of rays, hard and soft corals, over 400 species of fish and friendly wobbegong sharks.
One of the most incredibly beautiful and unique experiences you can enjoy in Australia is exploring it's underwater world. Full of vibrance and diversity, it is simply magical to enter into a water world and swim with an abundance of stunning sea creatures. Julian Rocks, off the shores of Byron Bay beach, is a nature reserve home to over 400 species of fish, three difference species of sea turtles (green, hawksbill and loggerhead), a variety of rays and corals, similar to what you would experience in the famous Great Barrier Reef.
Julian Rocks is the place where the tropical Coral Sea collides with the nutrient-enriched temperate currents of the southern Tasman Sea, resulting in a unique mixture and incredible abundance of marine life. It is only a 5-10 minute boat ride from The Pass to Julian Rocks. Whilst snorkelling you will be supervised by qualified dive staff who will ensure you get the most from your trip to Julian Rocks Marine Reserve. Turtles are incredibly chilled creatures and are quite happy to float about with you and smile for the camera, so make sure to pack the GoPro if you have one!
