Agnes Water & Town of 1770
Agnes Water and The Town of 1770 are on a peninsula surrounded on three sides by the Coral Sea and Bustard Bay mid-way up the Queensland coast, 50km off the Bruce Highway between Bundaberg and Gladstone. Agnes Water township and beach is eight kilometres south or the Town of 1770.
Town of 1770 is the closest access point north of Brisbane to the Great Barrier Reef, and was the second recorded landing place in Australia of Captain James Cook on The Endeavour in 1770; the first being Botany Bay just south of Sydney.
The area is rich in wildlife and natural beauty. The Joseph Banks Environmental Park preserves much of the peninsula with fauna and flora indicative of the area. (Joseph Banks was the botanist on The Endeavour.) The Town of 1770 is also a departure point for reef cruises and fishing charters to the outer Great Barrier Reef.
