"Surf meets the Reef and the Start of Tropical QLD - Picture Perfect!"

Some of the best beaches in Qld are one of the best features of Agnes & 1770, with mostly untouched and uninhabited places to escape all along this great stretch of coastline.
Where else in Oz can you go for a surf, then jump in your boat to a variety of estuaries, or even the Great Barrier Reef, and have a very friendly group of locals to hang out with! From previous review, the Ranches Estate does have areas where you'll encounter lots of sandflies, however there are also a few great blocks around, where you wont, and that have amazing views. Good selection of 4-10 acre blocks a few minutes from town, at reasonable prices, and if you are seekig a bit more space, then 40 acre blocks start just under 10 minutes away from the surf in Round Hill & Captain Creek. The area offers a very wide variety of vegetation, soil types, views and landscapes, so something for everyone. 1770 has to be one of the most scenic, largely unknown little seaside towns in Oz, and hopefully it stay that way for ever! The nearby city of Gladstone is experienceing massive growth in Industry, so it is expected that Agnes & 1770 will follow suit, being the 'best bit of coast' in Central Qld!

""Living in Agnes Water""

I have lived here for 7 years. The locals are extremely friendly and the tourists are always in holiday mode! The weather is perfect every day and the neigbourhood is safe. Surf, fishing diving is always great. No crocs or stingers or humidity as in further Qld. Agnes is peaceful almost like a retreat which city people sometimes need to escape or move to, to smell the roses and slow the pace down so to speak. Agnes will go a long way real estate wise, and we are also due for another boom. Town living is low maintenance, acreage wise...."Bicentennial Drive" is the most sought after being the closest acreages to the town and beaches ect. The "Cove Estate" is also great if you dont mind the drive. The "RANCHES ESTATE" however is cursed with SANDFLIES.. it is on the mangrove side of town. (guaranteed your relatives will not visit twice)! RE: Always ask the real estate agent if the property is in "THE RANCHES ESTATE" if it is run a mile - with your AEROGUARD!!! "Captain Creek" is a good 15 minute drive out of town,mostly large acreages. Agnes Water has the most wonderful wildlife and no traffic lights or roundabouts, love it! awesome place to live. Oh and The Tavern has the best meals in town!

agneslocal
agneslocal Your negative comments regarding the Ranches Estate are totally untrue and you really have no idea what you are talking about. There is a lot of area in the Ranches Estate and it is definatly not cursed with sandflies, in summer, on days with strong northerly winds the whole of Agnes, and the Cove Estate and in town and 1770 gets sandflies.... when you have lived here a little longer you will work this out, its just part and parcel of this beautiful town.
