The town of 1770 sits at the end of a peninsular and is the site where James Cook first landed on the shores of Australia.The town is sort of merged with Agnes Water and it was there where our hostel was situated.The hostel (1770 Backpackers) had just completed a large extension and the four of us were the first guests to stay in the dorm.Very clean smelling until Drew left his trainers inside for 5 minutes.Still attempting to stay reasonably fit Hannah and I went for a run in the morning hoping to reach 1770 itself as the hostel staff said it was only a few kilometers down the road. After 20 minutes or so and the sun getting hotter we decided to turn back and head for the beach. Spurred on by Laura however the Wallace's made it to 1770 and back which turned out to be well over a 10km round trip. After the rest of the morning relaxing we decided to walk the length of the beach in order to reach 1770 at the other end and then get a taxi home.Both Drew and myself suggesting that in no circumstance would we want to walk both ways as after all we had already run as well that day.Again with the word of the hostel that it was only about 3km along the beach we set off. What seemed like hours past, oh it was hours, until we finally reached the end of the beach. We then followed at least two paths before reaching a dead end of thick bush and had to return on foot to the hostel, you guessed it along the beach. What a lovely enjoyable walk.BBQ dinner and a six pack made small emends before getting on the night bus to Airlie Beach and the Whitsunday islands.
