Agnes Water

There is a certain kind of golden sparkle that glistens across the ocean in this part of South East Queensland and Agnes Water shines bright as the last stop in the surf beach stretch.

Surrounded by two beauties that Australia is well known for - the Pacific ocean and a number of diverse national parks - Agnes Water makes the perfect, quiet seaside getaway and you might even find time to learn how to surf while here with regular lessons on offer.

Its smaller cousin up the road, 1770 is where Captain Cook first landed in Queensland and you will see kayakers and stand up paddleboards dotting the protected waters and you can have a go yourself. You can also camp right on the water here - in a gorgeous, secluded campsite which could just be Queensland's best kept beachside secret.

Agnes Water and 1770 are the perfect place to go adventuring both on land and sea aboard an amphibious vessel and regular day trips to Lady Musgrave Island, one of the southernmost Great Barrier Reef jewels depart daily.

If you are seeking the thrills and spills of some rugged Four Wheel Drive territory, Eurimbulah, Kroombit Tops, Wreck Rock and Deepwater National Park are all easily accessible with secluded camp areas and exciting beaches, fishing spots, walking tracks and natural environment to explore.

You too can be an explorer like Captain Cook and discover Queensland's best kept secret at Agnes Water and 1770.
