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.
