This image is of the beach at beautiful 1770, a town in Central Queensland, famous for the landing of Captain Cook during the year of its namesake.
Captain Cook must have thought he had stumbled upon paradise when he entered this picturesque cove that forms the mouth of Baffle Creek, just north of Agnes Waters.
It is now known as the Mouth of Baffle Creek Conservation Park, and has been kept as a pristine location with only one camping site.
People of all ages can enjoy this idyllic and safe peace of paradise, with its sandy beaches, tangled mangroves and rocks to explore. On any fine day you will see dozens of yachts, tinnies, and parasails bobbing about the calm waters.
The mountains behind create a picture postcard backdrop behind the crystal clear azure water, and bordered by golden sands. You’d be hard pressed to find a more perfect location for a beach holiday.
