Located at the southern end of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is the town of 1770. 1770 is a picturesque seaside village named after the second landing site of James Cook and the crew of the Endeavour in May 1770. Pass through the township of Agnes Water on your way to the town of 1770. This area is surrounded by National Parks, secluded coves and some of the best beaches in the world.
1770 has an abundance of wildlife and natural beauty, with lots of walking trails to explore. For activities, you can go sandboarding, take a reef cruise, relaxing kayak tour or thrilling motorbike tour – there’s even a boutique distillery to visit. We recommend exploring this gorgeous region by land and sea in a unique pink amphibious vessel. A number of epic guided eco-tours around Agnes Water are where you’ll get to experience the moment your bus turns into a boat- in one swift move!
