Thumbnail Title Description

View of Byron Bay

Byron Bay is Alana's favourite place in the world. It is a low-key beach town with no high-rises, great surf and great atmosphere. It's hard to describe what makes it so special, usually people describe it by saying "there's just something about Byron"., 1/1/2006

Cape Byron

You can take a 4 km (2.5 miles) coastal walk from the main beach to the lighthouse. This is one of the spectacular views along the walk. Most days you can see dolphins playing in the surf from here., 1/1/2006

Byron surfers and Julian Rocks

This is another view from the lighthouse walk. If you look closely you will see many surfers waiting to catch a wave, and in the distance is Julian rocks - where we dove / snorkelled., 1/1/2006

Byron Bay Ocean

SCUBA in Byron

This was us earlier in the day. About 3 km (2 Miles) off shore, Juilian rocks is a meeting point for cold southerly and warm northerly currents, atracking a profusion of marine animals. Most people dive or snorkel to see sea turtles. While Niki and Laura snorkelled I dove seeing a large octopus, a few sharks, turtles and even pet a cow fish!, 1/1/2006

Byron Bay Julian Rocks

Julian Rocks are an important feature of the local Koori people. One story tells of two lovers from different clans who ran into the sea to escape their parents wrath. The lovers were drowned and transformed into the rocks., 1/1/2006

Byron Bay with friends

Laura is Alana's friend from NYC, and Niki is from London. Laura and Niki lived in Sydney from 1999-2000. There were here on holidays and Alana met them in Byron for 5 days. , 1/1/2006
