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 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 an unique mixture and incredible abundance of marine life. It's is only a few minutes boat ride from the Main Beach where you will be taken out by boat with an experienced guide who knows the area like the back of their hand and will be able to point you in the right direction to spot sleeping or eating turtles. 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!
