Trove Tuesday: Juan and Julia Rocks…or Julian Rocks?

There is a bunch of iconic, to both locals and tourists, rocks off Byron Bay called Julian Rocks. A few years ago, on a study excursion to the Cape Byron Lighthouse, I heard the story about the rocks originally being called the Juan and Julia Rocks. It seems that the discussion over the origin of the naming of these rocks has been going on for a while. This article is only one in a series.
