This was a weekend dive at the Julian Rocks, Byron Bay
**Lord Howe Island** is east of Port Macquarie in the \Tasman Sea\, Middleton Reef further to the north is in The Coral Sea.
If Lord Howe Island were a lot further north it would have a warmer and more pleasant climate. It is still a welcome sight after a voyage from the mainland via Middleton Reef.
When the world expert of \Gloria maris\ sea shells shows the largest **and the tiniest** specimens **he has ever dived for**, you can bet this to be something special.
Published here for the first time are the secret pictures of this amazing collection by **Wal Gibbins.**
