This little town with the highly unusual name is an environmentalist's dream as it is home to an abundance of flora and fauna that remains virtually unscathed by modern development. It also acts as a departure point for tours and day trips to the Great Barrier Reef.
1770 was named after the year in which Captain James Cook landed there in the Endeavour. As this was the first place in Queensland that Cook stepped ashore, it has come to be known as ‘The Birthplace of Queensland'.
1770 itself is nestled in Bustard Bay with an expanse of green stretching out behind and beautiful blue waters in front. You should begin your holiday in style by driving to 1770 along the Pacific Highway from Brisbane . Here, you will see some of the most breathtaking coastlines in the country. If you don't have your own transport, you can fly into the airports at either Gladstone or Bundaberg, both of which are about an hour's drive from the town of 1770.
1770 accommodation ranges from bush camping in the National Parks to family campsites, self-catering apartments and luxury, serviced villas that hide among the palms on the beachfront. Expedia.com will send you around the world with some fantastic cheap vacations. There is a wide selection to cater to every type of holiday whether it's a romantic break or an activity-packed vacation. If you're not self-catering, you can enjoy a meal at either of the town's two restaurants, or travel a short way down the road to Agnes Water for even more choice.
With the Great Barrier Reef just offshore and a choice of four National Parks in the nearby vicinity, 1770 is the ideal place to get back to nature. You can explore the reef and the rugged coastline in one of many charters or day tours that operate out of the town. The area is also renowned for its fishing and a tailored charter can be arranged from the 1770 Marina.
