Agnes Waters and Town of 1770


Agnes Water is Queensland’s northern most surf beach and is last in a line of beautiful, unspoilt beaches that sweep up the coast from Bundaberg.

Agnes Water and it’s sister township of 1770 offer a range of activities and holiday ideas – from relaxing at the beach, Four Wheel Driving through rugged coastal national parks, estuary, beach and deep sea fishing – to enjoying a soft adventure tour aboard an amphibious LARC vessel.

Agnes Water and the Town of 1770 is also one of the closest points on the mainland to the outer Great Barrier Reef, with three tours departing to either Lady Musgrave Island or Fitzroy Reef.

The Town of 1770 was named after the first landing of Captain Cook in 1770.

The  inlet has very low tides with sandbanks visible offering safe anchorage and secluded swimming.  The waters are calm and suitable for children to swim in, and the Camping ground is popular with young families complete with complicated tents, fishing boats and well behaved children who move quietly within the camp which is right on the shore

There are tours available to Musgrove Island cost $160 for a full day out with snorkelling and water activities.

The coastal walk is well presented with wooden and concrete paths winding along Paper Barks, Casuarinas and Moreton Bay ashes with informative boards shsring the story.

The area is rich with flora and fauna.

Around the camp are curlews, kookaburras, doves, honey eaters, seagulls, eagles and many other birds.

1770 is a idyllic paradise with a great kiosk selling fresh local fish,,Coral Trout, Hussar…and a beachfront hotel with excellent meals
