THINGS TO DO IN AGNES WATERS

 

Explore Agnes Water Beaches

From your villa’s doorstep, the beautiful stretch of Chinaman’s Beach is just a five minute (400m) walk along a sandy path that winds through native tropical forest.

Just north of this white sand surf beach is a sheltered cove protected by the rocky outcrop of Fence Point. With its beautiful shady spots, it’s the best spot for a picnic or for playing in the gentle waves.

If you’re feeling adventurous, take the path from Springs Beach along Rock Red and you’ll be greeted by pristine white sandy beaches, stunning headlands, and breathtaking ocean views that will stay with you for years to come.

Ready to take a dip? The Agnes Water Patrolled Beach is the beach for keen swimmers. Just a short drive into town from our Getaway, the Agnes Water beach stretches for 5.5 km all the way to Round Hill Head.

For a quiet escape, you’ll love Honeymoon Beach; a peaceful cove carved into the headland at Round Hill with a roughly built castaway hut and nothing (or no one) else.

 

Immerse Yourself in the Southern Great Barrier Reef and Lady Musgrave Island Tours

Experience the sapphire blue waters of the Southern Great Barrier Reef – the world’s largest coral reef – and enjoy snorkeling, exploring the unique coral fringed lagoon around Lady Musgrave Island, and whale watching (if you’re lucky). Lady Musgrave Island is set on 3,000 acres of living coral reef, and you’ll join colourful fish and big marine life like turtles and manta rays who call this island home.

The Lady Musgrave cruise takes passengers daily from 1770 out to the Great Barrier Reef.

 

LARC TOUR

When you visit the Town of 1770 and Agnes Water in the Southern Great Barrier Reef region, hop aboard the pink LARC vessel (a repurposed, pink amphibious military vehicle) and enjoy a lunch, sunset or full day tour exploring the Discovery Coast from the water. Just remember to keep your eyes out for dolphins!

 

Kayaking with 1770 Liquid Adventures

Give yourself the best chance to see pelicans, turtles, soldier crabs, dolphins, and rays with a paddle around the calm waters in the mouth of Round Hill Creek. If you sign on for a sunset tour you get the added bonus of being positioned on one of the only spots on the East Coast of Australia where you get to watch the sun dip behind a watery horizon. Magic.

 

Fishing

Whether you’re bobbing in a tinny on one of our estuaries, casting off from a beach or looking for something a little more – deep sea the fishing around our Getaway is second to none. Just ask at the café for Michael he’ll be happy to share his best spots for bringing in your catch of the day.

 

Red Rock Trail Walks

Whether it’s the Cook Monument walk, Red Rock Trail, the Paperbark walk or just a stroll on the beach, you’ll have a wonderful time taking in the sights that our little of corner of paradise has to offer.
