Holiday rentals in Seventeen Seventy, Queensland, Australia

The quaint seaside village of Seventeen Seventy, north of Brisbane, has managed to escape the clutches of urban sprawl, and retain its original, picturesque dignity. Excellent fishing spots, beautiful, quiet white sandy beaches and brilliant holiday accommodation, are all small town contributors in keeping the holiday resort town just as it was, hundreds of years ago. Getting its name from the year 1770, in honour of when Lieutenant James Cook landed his ship on the coast line, all those years ago, the landing has also been commemorated by the Captain Cook Memorial, close by, at Round Hill Head. Perfect for lazy beach holidays, there is an excellent choice of holiday rentals, self catering holiday apartments and luxury holiday villas available throughout the year for holiday makers.

Things to do and see

Fishing is very popular here, as there are some of the most picturesque fishing spots, all tucked away in coves and crevices. Take a fishing tour to be able to get to some of the best rock, reef, estuary and surf fishing spots there are. You can also pick up a guide to the area from the Discovery Centre in Agnes Water; there are plenty of maps available for the coastal areas.

Walk the coastal trails along the beachfront and head out to Round Hill Headland, where you will be able to see the anchor from the shipwreck MV Countless Russell, from 1873, and if you get up really early, you will be able to see one of the most spectacular sunrises from this spot, and later on the sun set over the water at Bustard Bay. On the way there, don’t forget to stop at the Captain Cook Monument.

If you are lucky enough to be in the area between November and January, you will be able to see the migration of turtles to the shore, as they arrive in their droves to come ashore and lay their eggs. One of the most beautiful natural wonders of the world and a rare sighting that is a privilege to bear witness to.

The Lady Musgrave Island National Park is a massive protective haven of 14 ha of coral and underwater wildlife, white sandy beaches and forests. Completely surrounded by more than 8km of pure, brilliant coral reef, you can become completely one with nature here, as you immerse yourself in the day to day life of the animals that live here. Bush camping is very popular, but totally self sufficient, and well worth it to see the turtles nesting and snorkel among the tropical fish on the reef.

Climate

The excellent climate and brilliant all year round weather, make 1770, one of the best places along the Capricorn Coast to have a holiday home, or to book a holiday rental. Warm summer days, with temperatures averaging on 32 C, and mild winter days of 21C, make this a pleasant visit any time of the year. As it is more likely to be busier during holiday periods, especially school holidays, you may want to pick a quieter time to head out to your holiday villa to relax, but the weather is always pleasant and temperate.

Getting there from the UK

The easiest way to get to 1770, is to fly directly to Bundaberg International Airport, and then hire a car and drive the picturesque route to 1770, through Agnes Water. The short 45 minute drive will take you directly to the door of your holiday rental, so be sure to get there before sundown, to catch the amazing sunset. You could also fly directly to Brisbane, and self drive the 500 or so km into Agnes Water, and make a road trip of the stunning route, and then fly back out of Bundaberg to the UK.

Such a great place. Everything is exactly as advertised and it's so quiet you are forced to relax! Thanks for having us!
