Town of 1770 Tours

Originally known as Round Hill after the creek it sits near, the town of 1770 was renamed in 1970 to commemorate the 200-year anniversary of James Cook and his crew landing in Australia. Today, travelers flock to this destination on Queensland’s Discovery Coast in the Joseph Banks Environmental Park. 1770’s close proximity to the scenic Coral Sea, crystal blue Bustard Bay and Agnes Water make it the perfect destination for ocean lovers.

In addition to friendly residents, local restaurants and lively pubs, 1770 is home to a small marina where local boats make daily trips to Lady Musgrave Island and the Great Barrier Reef, as well as weekly trips to Bustard Head Light Station, too.

Practical Info

The town of 1770 is accessible using the paved road from Bundaberg, about 75 miles to the south, near Agnes Water. Residents of 1770 host a re-enactment of Cook’s historic landing every May as part of the 1770 Festival, making it an ideal time to visit.
