1770 Headland and Lookout

Seventeen Seventy, Gladstone Area

Long, golden beaches, white waves crashing into the rocks below, aquamarine ocean as far as you can see and if it's whale season you might just spot a water spouting out of a blowhole on this short, headland walk.

You don't need to huff and puff to get to the best views of 1770 and surrounds, this easy family-friendly walk will do the trick and it only takes 30 minutes.

You can easily access a few lookout walks from the car park at the 1770 headland so this is another activity to add to your list while in the 1770 and Agnes Water area.

Swap your surfboard for sneakers for a morning or afternoon and traverse the area by foot instead of waves.
