Beaches of 1770

We had intended to stay in Gladstone today, but once we’d driven down the main street and found everywhere closed, it quickly became clear this wasn’t for us. I guess we should have known by the fact the town is famous for Alumina and Cyanide, nice.


Getting back in the camper we headed off to the next stop on the trip down south, Bundaberg. We didn’t quite make it though, after around 60mins we came across signs for a town called “1770”, so we had to go and check it out.


There seems to be only 1 road going through 1770, which luckily for us went past a really nice campsite right next to the ocean. As is the norm when we get somewhere, we quickly set everything up and head for the beach. After spending 60 mins walking along the clear surf, we head back and try to get some diving booked.


The guy in the camp shop gave us the name/number of the local dive company, but due to a weather front closing in over the next few days they wouldn’t be going out. The nice chap did find another company going out though, so we got ourselves booked in.


For the rest of the afternoon we sat outside the camper under the awning listening to the Ricky Gervais podcast.
