Byron Rocks Your World
The Byron Bay Gems, Rocks and Jewellery Show is being held over two days on the 18th and 19th June 2016, so you will have plenty of time to find the treasures of your dreams as well as meet some of Australia's top gem traders.

Entry to the show is $5 for adults and $3 for concession holders. Children under 12 years of age go free, so grab the kids and head towards Cavanbah Centre at 249 Ewingsdale Rd, Byron Bay. It's only 2.5kms off the freeway on the left hand side of Ewingsdale Rd heading into Byron.

Expect to see awesome crystal displays, stunning jewellery, polished gems, silver findings, beads, fossils, raw mineral specimens, special exhibits, and even some craft classes. It all adds up to be a fun day of learning and excitement for the whole family.
