Seventeen Seventy

Seventeen Seventy (known as The Town of 1770) is a picturesque seaside village surrounded on three sides by the Coral Sea and Bustard Bay.

Enjoy stand up paddle boarding, fishing and swimming at the calm waters adjacent to 1770 Foreshore, with extensive boardwalk, grassed picnic areas, barbecues and children's playground.

Historic as the second landing site of James Cook and the crew of the Endeavour in May 1770, the area is rich in wildlife and natural beauty and offers scenic vistas in every direction. The Joseph Banks Environmental Park preserves much of the peninsula with fauna and flora indicative of the area. Rugged granite rocky outcrops, both an outer surf and inner stillwater beach, and holiday accommodation in houses, apartments and two caravan and camping parks cater for visitors.

Two restaurants are located here, as is a general store and small marina. Agnes Water township and beach is located eight kilometres south.

Seventeen Seventy is also a departure point for reef cruises and fishing charters to the Southern Great Barrier Reef. Day tours and wilderness camping transfers operate to nearby Lady Musgrave Island. Day tours also operate to the historic Bustard Heads lighthouse. For the camping enthusiast, four National Parks including Deepwater, Eurimbula, Mount Colosseum and Round Hill offer wilderness camping and hiking.

Seventeen Seventy: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Cloncurry/Mary Kathleen Memorial Park Complex

The Cloncurry/Mary Kathleen Memorial Park Complex is located just off the main highway that runs through town with ample parking for cars, caravans and motorhomes. This is a perfect place to stop and take a break on your journey. It has something for the whole family - with a playground for the kids, amenities and a shaded picnic/barbecue area set in the beautiful parkland. Stretch your legs and go for a 10 minute walk up the lookout past the unique water feature and take in the spectacular panoramic view of Cloncurry and the surrounding rugged landscape. Enjoy the free outdoor display featuring historic mining, rail and farm equipment including a unique 1941 Ford V8 Rail Ambulance which was used when roads were impassible. The former Visitor Information Centre was originally the Oona Police Station building, which was then moved to Dobbyn and again moved to Mary Kathleen as a police station. After the mine shut down and the town dismantled, it was relocated to its current site and used as the Visitor Information Centre until 2013. The park also incorporates the Cloncurry Unearthed Visitor Information Centre and Museum.
