This little gem is saturated in Australian history and dates back to Captain Cook who on Wednesday 24 May 1770 went ashore his second landing in Australia to study the region in the Endeavour. Sir Joseph Banks also collected plant species from this area, which was noted in his journals.
The Town of 1770 is located approximately 1.5 hour’s north drive from Bundaberg and six hours from Brisbane. It is known for its advantage of being within close proximately to Lady Musgrave Island, Fitzroy Lagoon, Heron Island, Lady Elliot Island (The Bunker Group) and the Southern Great Barrier Reef.The whole region is gorgeous with plenty of attractions and activities to suit any traveller.
Yes totally agree with Ellemay.
It's located at the most southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef.
You can get boat trips out to the reef i.e. Lady Musgrave Island.
Both Agnes Water and 1770 are still quiet little towns in comparison to Hervey Bay, but well worth visiting
