Subdivision The estate comprises over 300 allotments averaging 1.5ha. (3.58 acres) The best land in Queensland Agnes Water is unspoiled and until recently had been overlooked. The reason was its inaccessibility by land. But these same factors now are the reason for an accelerating interest in this exquisite real estate opportunity. Many of Queensland's pacesetters in the past, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coats, are no longer private, available or affordable. Because of the percentage of land held in trust, because of the system of national parks and Crown land, because of Agnes Water's incredible beauty its value will never become undermined. The Location The Agnes Water Ranches estate is in one of the most pleasant and picturesque coastal environments on Earth. The estate straddles the undulating Round Hill Head promontory with direct frontages to the estuary and some achingly beautiful views of the coastline and the sea. The area is scheduled, free of the pollution of modern, urban living. There is crystal clear water, white beaches and landscapes which are unchanged since Captain James Cook explored the territory in 1770. The estates are minutes from the townships of Agnes Water and The Town of Seventeen Seventy which share the headland. They front directly on to the Round Hill Road 45km from the nearest sizable town, Miriam Vale. It is 100km north to Gladstone and 110km south to Bundaberg. There are telephone and power connections, general shopping facilities and a caravan park. Round Hill Creek offers safe, deep water anchorages for fishing boats and yachts and there is a boat ramp at 1770. There is a 1000 meter airstrip and interstate travel flights are available from Bundaberg and Gladstone. Bus services are available each day to a primary and a high school. The Climate One of the remarkable benefits of the coastal lifestyle at Agnes Water is its wonderful climate. The Agnes Water 1770 region has the same pleasant weather as Hawaii, with over 280 days of sunshine each year. At various times, Encyclopaedia Britannica has listed Bundaberg and Gladstone among the top five cities with the most equable climates in the world. Agnes Water is roughly half way between these two cities. Agnes Water Beach The waters are clean and clear the sands pure and white and they are amount the best surfing beaches on Queensland's eastern seaboard. More then one half of the beach is a declared recreation reserve and will remain undeveloped. National Parks Across the estuary of the Round Hill Head Creek, is the huge Eurimbula National Park. It is compromised of assorted tropical and temperate wilderness, chiefly the natural coastal pine, and is still in its natural estate. To the south are the Round Hill National Park and the proposed Deep Water National Park. There are marine breeding grounds in the wetlands and a fish habitat reserve in the estuary. Hinterland The Agnes Water hinterland contains some of Australia's most outstanding coastal wilderness. There are rolling green plains, mountain ranges and clear streams. Many properties have expansive views, inland or towards the Pacific Ocean, across the blue stretches of Bustard Bay. One of the attributes notes by Joseph Banks back in 1770 was the diversity of the wildlife along the unexplored coastal woodland and shore. Living on and among the flora are kangaroos, wombats and wallabies, mountain and king parrots, rosella, budgies, black cockatoos and sea eagles. The Great Barrier Reef Charter access is available to the Great Barrier Reef and resort islands 20 sea miles and Agnes Water. Lady Musgrave Island and Lady Elliot Island have the perfect environments of true coral islands. Both may be visited for snorkeling, swimming or scuba diving in water which are blue and clear. Loggerhead turtles and green turtles come ashore from November to March. Lady Musgrave and Lady Elliot islands are two of the 27 cays making up the Capricornia Section of the reef.
