Agnes Water is located 70 kilometres (43 mi) north of Bundaberg and 60 kilometres (37 mi) off the Bruce Highway.  It is accessed via the main road in called Round Hill Road. It is 90 minutes south of Gladstone, and 90 minutes north of Bundaberg on the Discovery Coast. Agnes Water is the closest access point to the southern Great Barrier Reef.[3] It is a neighbouring town of the Town of 1770.

 

I booked in at Agnes Waters Resort which had a track to the beach and was walking distance from the shops and town. The beach is small but very beautiful..

The main beach is 5.5 kilometres (3.4 mi) long, running from Round Hill in the north down to Agnes Water. The beach is relatively straight and faces east-north-east. Most of the beach is backed by a low dune and natural vegetation. At the southern Agnes Water end there is an extensive foreshore reserve, including a camping reserve. The beach usually receives waves averaging about one metre, which combine with the medium sand to build a moderately steep high tide beach, with a continuous bar exposed at low tide.

There is a Museum here and many tours as the town is mainly tourism and focuses on the town of 1770 where Captain Cook first landed when he came to Australia…in 1770. Touring took me to the Paper Bark Forest, to feed Kangaroos at the Kangaroo reserve and to 1770 for the Sunset from the Lookout Point. We also fed fish at the Marina there where you can take a day tour to the island.

Agnes Water is a growing town with many beautiful homes and facilities. The steep roads lead to some magnificent views over the town and the water, and there is also a ‘free’ Camping area which now costs $9.80 for camping over night. It has a track to the other side of the beach and is popular with backpackers and their vans.
