Our Philosophy

Meet Mike, Michi and their children JimRyan, Rieko and Sophie at there relaxing and bush property “Traveller’s Rest 1770”!

Opening up a nature-based camping ground was was initially sparked by years of experience at managing a Bush camp in the World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory  – with Mike as a seasonal ranger, presenting interpretive programs to visitors.

After a long time looking, February 2017 saw Mike & Michi finding their own piece of paradise in stunning Agnes Water! They love sharing their home with Traveller’s from all over Australia and around the world – a place where you can forget about the hustle and bustle in your daily lives, where you are surrounded by native bushland, where you can listen to the chatter of the Kookaburra’s, whilst enjoying a cup of tea overlooking the Lily Pad Pond.

They always knew that Mike’s passion in presenting interpretive programs in Kakadu would move with them to Queensland. So, it didn’t take long for Mike to start researching about the history and culture of the Discovery Coast. He volunteers regularly with an environmental group in Tannum Sands to learn more about the native flora and fauna and works closely with indigenous elders and local Tourism Organisations to present valid information to their campers. You can enjoy an interesting & informative Bush Tracks tour with Mike during your stay as well plenty of other things to see and do.

The “Traveller’s Rest 1770” is the perfect starting point to explore the Discovery Coast. Whether you explore one of the 4WD tracks into the National Parks, watch the waves spill over the rocks on untouched beaches or enjoy a famous sunset at Captain Cook’s landing spot – 1770.

Mike, Michi and the kids can’t wait to greet you!
