Agnes Water is located 123km southeast of Gladstone. The seaside holiday village is practically joined at the hip with its neighbouring “Town of 1770” (also known as Seventeen Seventy). The beaches are just beautiful along this stretch of coastline and “Agnes Water Beach” boasts the northernmost surf beach on the east coast. There is always plenty of action in the water here.
The beach is the place to be whilst holidaying in this relaxing village. It’s all about the sun, sand and surf. The picturesque beach is flanked by headland to the south and stretches around to Seventeen Seventy to the north. Lifeguards patrol the main swimming and surfing area and the foreshore offers a small park with barbeque, picnic and toilet facilities. Pet owners take note that dogs are prohibited on the beach.
The local caravan has absolute beach frontage
and is conveniently close to everything. There are also plenty of other accommodation options to choose from including backpackers, B&B’s, beach houses, apartments and resorts.
The township has adequate shopping facilities including supermarkets and all the basic requirements such as a bakery, butcher, newsagent, post office, fuel, cafes, restaurants and pub.
Just 1km south of town is Workmans Beach where a council camp ground is located. Cheap camping at $5.50 per person per night in shady designated camp sites with toilets, barbeques, picnic area and dogs are permitted is good value in a quiet bush setting away from the bustling town centre. The beach is gorgeous and the bush camp atmosphere appeals to many travellers. This camp is not suitable for caravans though as the sites are restricted in space.
Agnes Water is such a relaxing beachside holiday location where all you have to worry about is what you’re having for dinner, and maybe not even that.
