Description

You can book your campsite online on our website: www.travellersrest1770.com.au The Traveller's Rest 1770' offers spacious, shaded and tranquil campsites surrounded by beautiful bushland and tropical gardens with brand-new facilities. (Incl. hot and cold showers, drinking water, power plugs and kitchen sink) Located only 6 minutes drive from Agnes Water and 10 minutes from Captain Cook's famous landing spot 'The town of 1770'. 'The Original Discovery Coast Slideshow', an interpretive program presented to our campers free off charge, has been a welcome addition to what we have to offer. The fun, interactive and engaging presentation covers culture, history, regional flora and fauna and much more! Bring a drink and a snack and enjoy this unique experience with your whole family . Take yourself on a relaxing stroll through our diverse ecosystem or ask Mike to take you on a 'walk & talk' and learn more about the conservation corridor the property is on. Don't forget to take a snack and sit back and relax, whilst listening to the unique sounds of nature. You never know what you might discover....Kangaroos, wallabies, goannas, frilled-necked lizards, spotted dragons and many birds are often seen. (To protect local wildlife, pets and generators are not permitted.) Please bring your own fire pit if you would like to have a fire. We do have pits for hire ($5 for three nights) and sell firewood ($12 for large bag). Do not dump your toilet contents in our toilets. Dump point and water connection located at 1770 SES Grounds. We are looking forward to your visit!

Stayed 1 night in a tent on 27/8/2021. My second time here and I loved it as much as my first. Amenities still spotless, slideshow still great and it's nice to wake under trees. I have some more trips planned to this area and will stay again.

Stayed 2 nights 14/8/21 on the way home. Clean amenities, great showers and close to 1770 & Agnes Water for day trips. You can camp where you like & have your own space for a camp fire. Hosts are friendly & helpful. Mike arranged a walk through the property with his guests and with his background knowledge, was quite interesting. Recommended

Really enjoyed our stay. Sign on bathroom door asking everyone to wash their hands. Pretty hard to as no soap etc supplied. Friend asked Michael why not supplied, he replied don't have with less then 100 guest. NOT COVID FRIENDLY

Very much agree with last review. Checked out all of the caravan parks in town. They are all full and crammed in. So much space at Traveller's Rest. Good areas both sides of dam for larger vans. Nice walks, amenities and hospitality. < 10min drive to Agnes Water. Highly recommend.

Great spot! Unpowered sites in the bush anywhere you like, and a few powered sites near facilities and the dam. The amenities are basic but fine. No soap / hand wash anywhere though despite half of Queensland being in Covid lockdown. Easy run to 1770 and Agnes Water. Would recommend highly instead of the crowded places in the towns.

What a great relaxing camp ground! Owners friendly and helpful, good clean amenities, large sites in cleared area or bush setting. Campfires permitted and hire of fire drums available. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Great stop over after our trip back from the reef fishing, Mike the caretaker is lovely. Cheap and clean amenities and option for a campfire too!
