Julian Rocks Island



Julian Rocks: is a pair of small islands, surrounded by marine reserve 2.5 kilometers offshore from Byron Bay. According to a story from the Bundjalung people, a jealous husband threw his spear at the canoe of his wife and her lover. The canoe broke in two and sank to the bottom of the ocean. Only the back and the front of the boat stuck out of the water. The islands were named by Captain Cook when he passed through the area in 1770, naming the two main peaks after his nephew and niece, Juan and Julia. In 1982, after pressure from locals, the area surrounding the rocks was established as a marine reserve, with all fishing and commercial exploitation banned for a 500m range around the rocks.
