Above all, one of the top dive locations in Australia is the Julian Rocks Marine Sanctuary. “Nguthungulli,” the Arakwal name for this amazing location, offers protected, safe, and shallow waters ideal for snorkelling and freediving. With a variety of sites to explore and a rich fish population,

Julian Rocks, located off of Australia’s most easterly point, is where warm tropical and cooler temperate seas intersect, making it a haven for marine life. Visitors frequently include turtles, manta rays, leopard sharks, grey nurse sharks, dolphins, and whales.

Aporiginal Legend of Julian Rocks

  • For the Bundjalung of Byron Bay (Arakwal) people, Julian Rocks is a prominent and sacred Aboriginal site known as “Nguthungulli.”
  • According to one legend, the Father of the World, “Nguthungulli,” who made all the land, water, animals, and plants, is currently resting in a cave in Julian Rocks.
  • Over the years, the Elders have given instructions that Nguthungulli must be safeguarded against misuse or it will lead to disaster.
  • When the water levels were lower 7,000 years ago, the Bundjalung people used to walk to Nguthungulli to conduct ceremonies.
