Byron Bay - Diving Julian Rocks

So again I know this isn't quite snorkeling and it definitely isn't Sydney but the team at Sundive took us out for a great trip.

Julian Rocks (named by Captain Cook) are a  small bunch of sedimentary rock remains about 3km off Byron's coast. These rocks and the shelter they provide form a unique marine reserve which is home to over 500 fish species. The Bundjalung people of the area believe that the rocks came about when a jealous husband threw his spear at the canoe of his wife and her new lover, the canoe then split in half and formed the two rocks.

After gearing up and going over safety checks we headed out to the primary dive point. The photos aren't great as we were over 20 metres down. As they were quite blue I experimented a little with my black and white colour levels.

A very camoflauged Spotted Wobbegong

The highlight though was a bunch of different Grey Nurse Sharks.
