1770 Festival

The 1770 Festival

1770 Festival Captain Cook reenactment of May 1770

The Australian Central Queensland Discovery Coast, named in part because of Captain Cooks first landing on Queensland soil in May 1770. The Discovery Coast Twin Towns Agnes Water - Town of 1770 hold the Annual re-enactment of this historic landing as part of the Annual 1770 Festival.

This is not a Event to be missed with vistors from Australia Wide and Across the World Attending this Historic Event.

The 1770 Festival, From Humble Beginings to Significant Event

The first re-enactment of the landing of Captain Cook on the shore of Bustard Bay in Queensland, on May 24th 1770, was held as part of the bicentennial celebrations in 1970.

In 1993, residents of Agnes Water - Town of 1770 and surrounding areas re-established this event by holding the 1770 festival to celebrate the birthplace of Queensland on the Saturday closest to the 24th May each year.

From humble beginnings, the 1770 festival has grown into a significant Queensland regional event attracting thousands of visitors from intrastate and interstate, while still retaining its focus on our history, our families and our community.

Media coverage and promotion of the 1770 festival is extensive throughout the Queensland and Australia, focusing on the Miriam Vale Shire, the Discovery Coast and the Town of Seventeen Seventy as the birthplace of Queensland promoting this beautiful and progressive part of paradise.

The 1770 festival has grown to include an Art Exhibition and Comedy Show on the Friday prior. A colourful street parade and the re-enactment of the landing of Lieutenant James Cook (today known as Captain Cook) and crew are just some of the highlights of a full day of entertainment from local school children to top named bands, culminating to a huge fireworks display over Beautiful Bustard Bay.

Planning for the 2011, 1770 festival in underway.

Common Misspelling
Common misspelling of Accommodation

accom, accomadation, accomidation, accomodation, accomodations, accommadation, accommidation, accommodation, accommodations, acomadation, acomidation, acomodation, acommadation, acommidation, acommodation, accomdation, acoomodation

Agnes Water often called Agnes Waters and it is common for Lady Musgrave Island to be called Lady Musgrove Island and Captain Cook to Captian Cook and Capitan Cook or Captan Cook, with the Town of Seventeen Seventy now known as 1770 that would be hard to misspell for anyone. The correct spelling of Bundaburg Queensland, is Bundaberg.
