Byron Underwater Festival 09

Diving into Byron Bay

Diving into Byron Bay

Divers get to check out some very beautiful parts of the world and Byron is no exception.  The main dive site, 2.5 km off shore,  is called Julian Rocks  and it is ranked in the top 10 Australian dive sites.  AboriAccording to the traditional landowners, the Bundjalung people, the  rock  was formed when a jealous husband threw his spear at the canoe of his wife and her lover.  The canoe broke in two and sank. Only the prow and the stern stuck out of the water, creating what is now known as Julian Rocks.
This site is highly regarded for its abundant and diverse  marine creatures, especially the  larger ones!


So from Monday the 27th of April to Sunday the 3rd of May at Julian Rocks, the 2009 Byron Underwater Festival will be held.  If you have ever wanted to experience this marine environment for yourself, now is the time.  Come and participate – whether you want to learn more about it, dive it, snorkel it, kayak it … or even paint it.

You can check out the full program at http://www.underwaterfestival.com.au/

Go on, get wet!

Hopefully for the Festival the sun will be shining. (I think the large marine creatures will be there regardless, please try not to swallow your reg..)
