Julien Rocks has been a mecca for divers travelling the East Coast of Australia since the 1970's. The Rocks is a small outcrop no more than 150-200meters in diameter and approx. 1kilomatre off the Byron Bay beach. During the winter months Grey Nurse sharks (mainly pregnant females)frequent the area much to the enjoyment of divers. Depths are shallow( 7-8meters in the Nursery area)but go deeper on the exposed eastern side in the vicinity of the Cod Hole (10-12metres). The Nurse sharks tend to prefer the deeper more isolated area of Julien Rocks.
