Location

Agnes Water and Town of 1770 are on the Queensland coast, halfway between Gladstone and Bundaberg.

The remote Central Queensland coastal towns of Agnes Water and 1770 are surrounded by a pristine natural environment with kilometres of wilderness to the west, Eurimbula National Park and Deep Water National park to the north and south. To the east is the Southern Great Barrier Reef. The small local population has barely made a mark on the landscape, leaving the area much the same as when our local indigenous tribe, the Gooreng Gooreng people populated the area. They witnessed Lt. James Cook land here on 24th May 1770 at what is now called Round Hill Creek. This was his first Queensland landing, and only his second landing in Australia.
