Lisa is absolutely wonderful! When we found ourselves without any internet and no way of finding where we needed to go, Lisa was so kind and helpful with a map and directions. We went back a couple of times for a few souvenirs and highly recommend the T-shirts, my husband lives in his and it washes and wears very well. If you need anything in Agnes Waters, go and see Lisa. Highly Recommend.

The expert advice from Kevin and the quick phoning through to see if bookings were available for the Lady Elliot Island tour by Lisa, saw us flying out the next day. Thank you for your expertise, sound knowledge and helpfulness in trying to secure the best possible deal.

Glad we could help you create wonderful memories. It's a little known secret that flights to Lady Elliot Island are available from our Agnes Water's airstrip. You're one of the lucky ones! Thanks for taking the time to review... See you next Holiday here, Lisa

Entering Discover 1770 Holiday Shop expecting to hire bikes for the day, what we didn't expect was to leave with was an above and beyond customer experience! We came late in the afternoon when it was just about closing time when we wanted to hire the bikes for 24hours. We were greeted with a smile and some banter by Kevin (KP/Kev) who not only hired us the bikes, but he had also offered to teach us how to ride them (Fortunately we already had this skill). We were excited to have the bikes & Kevin shared that excitement with us. We left on our merry way with our bikes (my bikes name was Kent and Teghans bike was... taller black bike), they were everything we needed and more to get around 1770 & Agnes Water to see the sites! On the return of the bikes, Kevin was working again to our delight. We shared all of the adventures we had with our bikes and he was super dooper friendly. We rate a place not necessarily on the destination its self, but more so on the people we meet there, and Kevin defintiely made Agnes Water! Pop in and go see him for some bikes, some souvenirs or even just to meet Kevin himself and have a chat. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

It looks small from the outside but we were quite surprised once we stepped in store. A great place to buy souvenirs! We got a few T-shirts and a couple of magnets. The service we received from the gentleman behind the counter was really genuine and helpful. Cheers!

We hired a couple of bikes to explore Agnes (paperbark forest) and then down to 1770. Area if fairly felt, so easy to get around. Bikes were in good condition, and price included helmets and a lock. The guy manning the shop was super friendly and gave us a good itinerary for our ride. Definitely a great way to see the area!
