HOW TO GET THERE

It’s best to have your own vehicle to visit as public transportation options are few and far between.

Another great option for traveling along the east coast of Australia is to rent a campervan that comes fully equipped with a double bed, fridge, gas cooker, kitchen utensils, lots of storage, and many more great features.

BEST TIME TO VISIT AGNES WATER

This stunning destination in Queensland sees glorious sunshine almost all year round.

If you want the best of the best conditions weatherwise, I recommend visiting between May and October (Autumn, Winter, and Spring) which is less busy and most ideal for beach bumming, coastal walks, and water sports. 

Summer in Australia is between December and February which sees hotter temperatures, some rainfall, and more tourists.

All that aside, it’s still a great time to visit during this time.

SEE THE SUNRISE AT SPRINGS BEACH

To kick off your adventures, I highly recommend visiting Springs Beach, especially at sunrise!

Located just 10 minute’s drive from the center of town, Springs Beach is far away from the crowds and boasts golden sands, awesome waves for surfing, and a rocky headland that can be reached via the Red Rock walking trail.

From the turn-off point on the main road, it’s a short and bumpy dirt road to reach the Springs Beach parking lot, and from here it’s a 5-10 minute walk through the forest via a wooden boardwalk to get to the shoreline. 

You could easily spend an hour or two at this magnificent beach, soaking up the sun, lazing on the soft sands, and taking a refreshing dip in the ocean. Not a bad way to start the day if you ask me!

EXPLORE CHINAMANS BEACH

Chinamans Beach is one of my favorite beaches in 1770 and for sure not to be missed during your visit.

Located just 5 minutes from the center of town along Springs Rd, take the turn off on the left-hand side, drive over the hill and be in complete awe as you catch your first glimpse of Chinamans Beach.

Click here to see the location on Google Maps.

Glistening white sands, turquoise waters, vibrant Pandanus trees, and an almost endless stretch of shoreline are just some of the awesome things you can expect at this epic beach.

If you’re a keen fisherman, there is a rocky outcrop on the beach’s northern end, perfect for throwing a line in.

If fishing isn’t you’re thing, you can stroll along the beach, relax in a hammock beneath the Pandanus trees or take a refreshing dip in the ocean to cool off.

Chinamans Beach is also dog-friendly as long as they’re kept on a leash, so feel free to bring your pooch with you for some fun in the sun!

It may seem small on the outside, but what you will find on the inside of the Museum is a large number of interesting artifacts including journals, charts, logs, and a model of HM Bark Endeavour commanded by none other than Lieutenant James Cook himself. 

It’s truly a step back in time that showcases the history of the area and I guarantee you won’t regret paying a short visit to this iconic attraction.

CHECK OUT THE CAPTAIN COOK MONUMENT

Agnes Waters and 1770 is, in fact, the birthplace of Queensland, and you can stand at the exact same spot where one of Captain Cook’s crew carved the date, 24th of May 1770, on a tree near to where they first anchored and came ashore.

The tree is no longer there but in its place is a stone monument that commemorates Cook’s landing and his first venture on dry land in what is now called Queensland.

There is a parking lot located next to the Captain Cook Monument, which provides easy access for your visit, and this is also the starting point for the Round Hill Creek walking trail if you’re keen on a little coastal adventure.

SEE THE VIEW FROM WAVE LOOKOUT

Next up on this list of things to do is see the incredible view from Wave Lookout!

Located on the 1770 Headland, you can park your car in the free parking lot and wander down the trail to reach Wave Lookout which overlooks a secluded beach and the coastline to the south of Seventeen Seventy Queensland.

Click here to see the location on Google Maps.

It’s also possible to access the beach beneath Wave Lookout via a steep walking trail; be super cautious and take your time getting down to the shoreline.

Once you step foot onto the golden sands, look up and marvel at the enormous cliff surrounding and you can even go for a swim in the ocean, providing the conditions are calm.

In that case, don’t forget to take your microfibre towel to dry off after a dip!

It’s a short 350-meter walk to reach Bustard Bay Lookout and from here you can enjoy sweeping views to the north and south of Seventeen Seventy.

Also, be sure to keep a sharp lookout to spot humpback whales showing off their acrobatic skills during their annual migration along this stretch of coastline.

Whales can be seen from the Bustard Bay Lookout between the months of June and November each year, so if you wish to add this experience to your list of things to do, be sure to visit during this time.

WATCH THE SUNSET IN SEVENTEEN SEVENTY

If you time your visit to Wave Lookout and Bustard Bay Lookout in the afternoon, I highly recommend sticking around this area for sunset.

It is said that 1770 is one of only four places on the east coast of Australia where you can witness the sun setting over the ocean… pretty cool huh?!

I personally parked my campervan in the parking lot at 1770 Headland one afternoon, pulled out the camp chairs, and toasted the sunset with a nice cold glass of Rosé.

It was the best way to end an epic day of adventures.

HAVE A BBQ BY THE BEACH

I am guessing you’re planning on spending more than one day exploring this region, so why not enjoy a BBQ with your friends and family right down on the beach in 1770!

It’s best to grab some food supplies from Foodworks in the main town before driving along the coast to 1770.

One spot I can recommend for a beach BBQ is a spot called Air Sea Rescue Park, which has everything you need, including electric BBQs, fresh running water, picnic tables, beach access, and close to toilet amenities. 

Cook up a storm, crack a beer, and I’m sure you’ll make friends with some of the locals in no time!

1770 LARC TOUR

The LARC tour in 1770 is truly a unique experience and one of those things you just have to try!

If you don’t know what a LARC is, don’t worry, as I had no clue what it was either when I first arrived. Basically, it’s a large off-road vehicle that can drive on land and in the water.

You may or may not have seen anything like it before but they are incredible machines, to say the least.

Jump on board the pink-colored, amphibious-like LARC and explore the secluded sandbars and beaches in the Southern Great Barrier Reef, visit remote areas of the national park and check out the Bustard Head Lighthouse.

Choose from a number of different LARC tours including the Paradise Tour, Afternoon Cruise, LARC + Lunch, or the Goolimbil Walkabout.

STROLL ALONG THE 1770 FORESHORE

Last but not least on the list of awesome things to do in Seventeen Seventy Australia is taking a nice and easy stroll along the 1770 Foreshore!

Begin the walk from Air Sea Rescue Park and follow it along the water’s edge of Round Hill Creek, past the 1770 camping ground, and up the hill until you reach the Captain Cook Monument.

As you stroll along 1770 Foreshore, keep an eye out to spot the local wildlife such as pelicans and seagulls, marvel at the swaying yachts anchored in the bay, and most of all enjoy the tranquil serenity that 1770 is best known for!
