Cape Byron is Australia's most easterly point. It is close to Byron Bay
, a popular beachside town in New South Wales.
Aboriginal name is Cavvanbah, meaning meeting place.
In the 19th century cedar logging and gold mining became important for the region.
In 1901 a lighthouse was build
at Cape Byron. Later that century meat processing, including that of captured whales created a very special smell.
Bay draws many surfers and bathers to Tallow Beach.
The Julian Rocks
are just a few km out and very popular with divers.
Byron Bay in July 1999.
A dive at the famous Julian Rocks was a disappointment because of very murky waters, but I did spot some wobbegongs
a nice view over Tallow Beach
