Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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!

Great service and really enjoyed the island tour and snorkeling at lady Musgrave Island. The marine diversity is incredible and got to swim with a turtle.

Kevin at Discover 1770 was amazing. I called to enquire about booking some reef trips, and he had lots of great advice for how I could best do all the trips I wanted to do. He then made all the bookings for my trips to Lady Elliot and Lady Musgrave Islands, and the whole process was quick and easy. While on my trip, I was so grateful for his advice (especially the hire car!), and my trip was so much better for following it!
I highly recommend Discover 1770 for your holiday bookings and general advice.

A big thank you to Lisa at Discover 1770 who assisted us with our Lady Musgrave Island day trip.
Lisa managed a late change to our trip in a very professional and friendly manner.

Lisa and Kevin from DISCOVER 1770 recommended the day trip to Lady Elliot Island for my husband , adult daughter and myself and it was brilliant.
From the moment we hopped on the plane our adventure started. The scenic flight around Lady Musgrave then onto Lady Elliot was amazing .
Once we arrived at the island we went on the glass bottom boat trip and went snorkeling from the boat.
We then snorkeled the rest of the day on both sides of the island, which was fantastic.
There are several other activities on offer but we were content with snorkeling.
The scenic flight home was fabulous flying low into 1770 and Agnes Waters.
The pilot gave a terrific commentary during the flights.
The day was worth every cent .
