From Wikitravel

1770 / Agnes Water is a beachside destination near Gladstone in the Capricornia region of Queensland.

Understand

Agnes Water is a small town, facing the ocean. A few minutes further on the town of 1770 is smaller again, and faces the bay where Captain Cook landed. There is a patrolled ocean beach at Agnes. At 1770 there is a waveless beach, extensively used for boating, but with a small bathing area as well. There is an extensive camping area right on the beach, so if you are not camping you will contend with campers doing what campers do on the beach. Most accommodation in Agnes refers to itseld as being in 1770, and is a little more upmarket than 1770 itself. The wharf where the Reef cruises leave from is at 1770 itself, in the bay.

Get in

By plane

There is an airstrip, but no scheduled commercial flights. Commercial flights into Bundaberg to the south, and Gladstone to the north, but if looking for a cheap airfare, the Fraser Coast airport at Hervey Bay, around 90 minutes drive to the south, may be an option.

  • Captain Cook Monument, (Captain Cook Drive). Captain Cook came ashore here in 1770, and the monument commemorates the event  edit
  • The Great Barrier Reef. Day boat trips to the reef and to Lady Musgrave Island leave from 1770

  • Headland Walk. From the end of Captain Cook drive there is a walk out to the headland, and a view out over the ocean and the bay.
  • Surf. Agnes Water is the most northerly surf beach on the eastern coast of Australia, the ones further north are protected by the Great Barrier Reef.
  • Ocean Swimming. Agnes Water has a patrolled ocean beach. 1770 has a sheltered beach on the bay.

There are two sets of shops at Agnes Water. Two supermarkets, souvenirs, and a collection of locally made products.

Drink

There are pubs in 1770 and in Agnes. In 1770 you get a view over the bay. There is a pizza restaurant linked.
