Short Drive from Gladstone – Agnes Water & 1770

Those in the Gladstone region with a full tank of petrol and a weekend to spare should consider a great coastal drive perfect for the whole family.

Starting in the Town of 1770, a picturesque town entrenched in Australian history and surrounded by the Coral Sea, rugged hinterland and untouched national park.

Just 6.6 kilometers down the road is Agnes Water, the northernmost surf beach on the east coast of Australia.

For holidays that begin with bitumen a visit to RACQ’s Bring Back the Roadtrip website is a great resource, with a whole stack of itineraries to take the guesswork out of where to go.
