Agnes Water / The Town of 1770

We arrived into Agnes Water after a rather gruelling overnight Greyhound bus from Airlie with a particully grumpy driver, who more than once had been rude to most of the passengers on board, not an experience with them I had had before and not one I appreciated after being awake since 6am the morning of catching our midnight bus.
Our hostels shuttle bus was waiting for us as we arrived and we sleepily loaded ourselves on board as the lovely guys from the hostel put our heavy cases on board. We stayed at Nomads Southern Cross which is about a 10 minute drive from the sleepy town of Agnes.

After checking in, using the wifi and having a quick sleep before the midday bus we jumped back onboard and heaved back to Agnes for lunch. There isn't much to do in Agnes Waters it was mainly the history we stopped here for from the town of 1770 where Captain Cook made hai first Queensland landing on Australia in 1770, hence the name of the town. We waked up to 1770 along the roads and then back along the beach which you can't really swim on but is perfect conditions for surfers. So we spent most of the afternoon lazing on the beach watching the surfers from the soft sand.
