Seventeen Seventy


1770 Resorts & Information

1770 is located at the southern end of Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef, almost exactly half way between Bundaberg and Gladstone. This stunning beachside location proudly offers beach holidays how they used to be—ultimate relaxation in an area that few have discovered! Sealed roads will take you to 1770 and its neighbouring township of Agnes Water. Just 8km apart, these two towns are simple, but far from sleepy. With supermarkets, cafés, restaurants, pubs, art galleries, museums, and a range of tours and activities on and near the water, all kinds of holiday makers will enjoy this unique region. Float, paddle, jets-ski, or surf on the ocean—there’s both a lagoon area and wave breaks! Stinger suits are not required at 1770, another great perk of the area and one sure reason to make this your new family holiday destination!

History

1770 was named after the first landfall of a European (Captain Cook) on Queensland’s eastern coast. The town is the only one in the world to have a number for a name and has managed to preserve and hero a lot of its natural beauty due to being largely underestimated as a destination for so long! These days, the Joseph Banks Environmental Park preserves much of the flora and fauna on the peninsula area and holiday makers are drawn in by the picturesque yet rugged rock outcrops and ultimate relaxed beach lifestyle!

Regional Activities

There’s plenty to do in this stunning coastal region. Swim in the ocean, learn the art of water sports and surfing, or head to the marina to arrange a snorkel trip at the Great Barrier Reef. Fishing, camping, and bush walks are popular here as there are plenty of amazing estuaries, unspoiled rainforests, and National and Marine parkland! Visit the neighbouring town of Agnes Water to learn about the history of the region at the Agnes Water Museum or head further afield to Lady Musgrave and Middle Island. Festivals, live music, and art is popular here too so, if no matter if you’re looking for an action-packed or a completely relaxed coastal escape, it makes sense to pick 1770 as your new holiday destination!
