Experiences in Australia

125 kilometres south of Gladstone is the Town of Seventeen Seventy where Captain Cook anchored his ship the Endeavour in Bustard Bay and made his second landing on the continent of Australia, this being in 1770, as the name of the town suggests. The original name was Round Hill and change to 1770 in 1970 to commemorate Cook's bicentennial. The exact landing point is at Monument point.

1770 is next to Agnes Water and for visitor is very much one unit. Agnes Water is the northern most surfing beach in Queensland . The area has holiday accommodation, restaurants, a general store, and a marina. The wildlife and vegetation have been well preserved.
