Under the Water

Byron is blessed with a unique distinction of the most easterly point of Australia, and it is at this point that tropical water of the Coral Sea collides with the nutrient-enriched water of the southern Tasman Sea.

This special blend provides the perfect environment for tropical species to swim alongside more temperate-suited species.

While you're diving in Byron, you are likely to see:

  • Manta Rays
  • Leopard Sharks
  • Turtles
  • Wobbegong Sharks
  • Eastern Blue Gropers
  • And a wide array of schools of pelagic fish, including snapper, trevally, sweetlips, batfish and more!
