Town of 1770

Leaving Bundaberg after lunch yesterday we drove 175km north to the Town of 1770, yes, that's really the name of it. It's a very important town in Australia's history, it is because in 1770, Captain James Cook in search of Terra Australis (The Great South Land), stopped here to look for fresh water.


So this morning, we jumped on an amphibious vehicle for an all-day tour to the Bustard Head Lighthouse, travelling along the sandy beaches and crossing rivers and estuaries to get there.

  7. I see you have quite a few blogs, you are a busy lady! I knew I had seen your face before many times when you comment to my friends! I will just have to sign up to follow them all. I had meant to comment on your other blog how I love this barrel building! And Mary Poppins is delightful! I'm suspecting this blog is more serious, so poor bear is left out of it!
