Agnes Water, 1770 and Miriam Vale

Agnes Water, 1770 and Miriam Vale

Agnes Water is Queensland's northern-most surf beach and is the last in a line of beautiful, unspoilt beaches that sweep up the coast from Bundaberg. Agnes Water and its sister township of Seventeen Seventy offer a range of activities and holiday ideas - from relaxing at the beach, four wheel driving through rugged coastal national parks, beach and deep sea fishing - to enjoying an adventure tour aboard an amphibious vessel. Agnes Water and Seventeen Seventy are also one of the closest points to the outer Great Barrier Reef, with tours departing to both Lady Musgrave Island or Fitzroy Reef.

Agnes Water features accommodation, shops and eateries and services - all with a beachside atmosphere. The Agnes Water Museum houses local history with interesting information about Captain Cook and his voyages. Many beautifully designed homes dot the palm covered hillsides, all with a look reminiscent of the tropics of tropical north Queensland.

Miriam Vale was founded on cattle, tobacco, timber and dairy. In recent years the town have moved towards tourism with the dairy and tobacco industries fading from the 70's. Miriam Vale boasts a nine-hole golf course with small greens and mature gum trees. 

The area was founded on grazing and timber but now boasts a strong tourist influx, good fishing, National Parks and a high population growth particularly along the Coastal fringe. The town serves as the main gateway to the delightful Discovery Coast towns of Agnes Water and Seventeen Seventy, Eurimbula, Baffle Creek, and Deepwater National Parks.

Historical Bustard Heads lighthouse is an experience not to be missed whilst in the area.
