The Origins and Meaning Behind Land Rover’s Adventurous Colours.

You may have noticed the desirable colours’ interesting names when viewing the new Land Rover models we have in inventory. In this series, we will dive a little bit deeper into each of the colours’ names, their origin, and meaning. Today we examine Byron Blue.

Byron Blue: Handsome, Light Blue, Metallic Paint.

Byron Blue reminds us of the gentle mist floating over the ocean in the morning at La Jolla Shores. But to learn the true background of Land Rover’s Byron Blue, we have to travel about 8,000 miles away from San Diego County.

Say Hello to the Blue Mountains near Byron Bay, Australia.

Why are they called the Blue Mountains? Because “A blue haze blankets the region when viewed from a distance, hence the name Blue Mountains. Forests of eucalyptus and gumtrees grow in the area. All four different types of eucalyptus trees covered the hills, mountains, valleys, canyons, and plateaus. These eucalyptus forests emit a huge amount of oils into the atmosphere. When eucalyptus oils, dust particles, and water vapour combine, as the sunlight hits, it creates an optical illusion of a blue haze. The light allows the eyes to see the blue pigments in the atmosphere.” Source: Wildlife Tours Australia

Here you can see the blue haze from the mountain’s namesake.

The Blue Mountains National Park is a protected national park that is located in the Blue Mountains region of New South Wales, in eastern Australia. The 267,954-hectare national park is situated approximately 80 kilometres west of Sydney. Despite the name mountains, the area is an uplifted plateau, dissected by a number of larger rivers. The highest point in the park is Mount Werong at 1,215 metres above sea level; while the low point is on the Nepean River at 20 metres above sea level as it leaves the park.
