Fraser Coast and 1770

  Discovery Coast

On the drive North from Brisbane toward the Town of 1770, you pass the world's largest sand island, Fraser Island, with its beautiful beaches and the stunning Lake MacKenzie.

Approximately 5-6 hours drive North of Brisbane lies the Town of 1770 and the beautiful Discovery Coast.

For motorists, drive to Miriam Vale on the Bruce Highway then follow the signs. The roads are substantially improving over the years, and what was once a jarring gravel road is easily accessible by conventional vehicle, and mostly bitumen.

The area offers a lovely seaside township atmosphere, between the two main villages of Agnes Water and the Town of 1770 itself.

The Deepwater National Park and surrounding nature reserves offer some amazing scenery.

 The Town of 1770 is so named after Lieutenant James Cook's landing. The Captain Cook Memorial at Round Hill Head commemoratest he second time he ever set foot on Australian soil. When you see the Discovery Coast for yourself you'll wonder why Cookie didn't stay !
