Things To Do

The Towns of 1770 and Agnes Water are linked by kilometers of pristine beaches bordering the Coral Sea. With access to the Great Barrier Reef at Lady Musgrave Island, Seventeen Seventy and Agnes Water are part of the Discovery Coast which has the most northern surf beaches in Queensland. Combine these features with the laid back village atmosphere that beach lovers seek, Town of 1770/Agnes Water is an idyllic escape. Surrounded by National Parks and hinterland beauty, the Discovery Coast has been luring newcomers since Captain Cook stepped ashore in 1770. It is impossible to overlook the regions physical beauty and it isn’t just ‘skin deep’. Once you scratch the surface of the Discovery Coast you will uncover your own relaxed sub-tropical paradise.
