PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO HOT AND DRY WEATHER CONDITIONS, WE DO NOT CURRENTLY ALLOW OPEN FIRES IN OUR CAMPGROUND! THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
At Traveller’s Rest 1770 you can immerse yourself in a truly restful experience on our 44 acres bush property, just outside of Agnes Water, Queensland. We invite you to enjoy a unique eco camping experience, whilst having the comfort of new and well-maintained amenities with hot showers. The lush dam is bursting with water lilies, while water birds visit for a refreshing drink. Start your day with the calls of Kookaburra’s, nestled in the tall Gumtrees and settle by your campfire to the complete solitude of starry skies at the end of your day.
You get to choose your own piece of paradise, depending on weather conditions. Your space to sit back and listen to the sounds of nature, away from modern technology!

(Please note: To improve the overall guest experience we have some maintenance work scheduled from 4th July – 31st August 2023. The works are not going to effect the main camping area, and we will try to keep any noise to a minimum. We appreciate your understanding, and we hope you will enjoy the improvements during a future stay at “Traveller’s Rest 1770”!)
Mike will take you on an unforgettable journey native Australian bushland, rich with Bushtucker and Bush Medicine. A great tour for the entire family!
Along the pristine coastline of Queensland lays the Discovery Coast, nestled between Bundaberg and Bagara in the South through to the town of Rockhampton and Yeppoon in the North. On the way from Bundaberg, you will drive through Sugar Cane fields, cattle pastures and wide-open roads, which are so well-known for Queensland. Immerse yourself in the relaxing drive to “Traveller’s Rest 1770”, conveniently located on the main road to Agnes Water. The ideal location offers campers easy access to their campsite, whilst immersing themselves in a real Australian bush camping experience. Our unbeatable location, surrounded by tropical gardens and lush bushland, invites our guests to connect with nature and themselves. Our family-run campground is the closest access point to Eurimbula National Park, with its endless sandy beach and lookout walks. Agnes Water is only six kms away and offers everything a Traveller’s Heart could wish for.
When leaving Agnes Water to the North, you will pass little country towns and might end up in the state’s engine room – Gladstone or visit the Calliope River Historical Village. The beauty of travelling is, you never know where the road will take you!
