Agnes Water, Queensland
Hotels and accommodation on the Great Barrier Reef.

Map of the Great Barrier Reef

Despite its relative remoteness from major Queensland attractions, the town of Agnes Water is fast evolving into a popular destination for tourists.

This is in part due to a five-kilometre stretch of golden sands as well as great surfing swells. There is a reasonable selection of hotels in Agnes Water as well as budget hostels and campsites.

The majority of the town’s hotels are in the vicinity of the Round Hill Road-Captain Cook Drive intersection. The Mango Tree is beside the main beach access road and offers basic rooms for families with full facilities. Sandcastles 1770 Resort is a beachfront option with contemporary and well-appointed rooms and apartments. There is a swimming pool, a breakfast café and Kahuna’s Restaurant onsite.

Other great hotels in Agnes Water include LaLaLand Retreat and Captain Cook Holiday Village. Both of these establishments are within a couple of minutes’ walk of the beach. The cottages at LaLaLand are set on a spacious tract of land and facilities here include a lovely saltwater pool and a barbie area. The Holiday Village offers accommodation in varying degrees of luxury and a campsite in addition to top-notch amenities such as a children’s playground and a restaurant.

Agnes Water Tavern is the hub of the entertainment venues in town and has regular live acts and a homely bistro. Although many make the trip to this part of Queensland to surf the swells generated by the Tasman Sea or to enjoy the fantastic beach, there are a number of other inimitable activity and sightseeing destinations.

Hotel guests are just eight kilometres from the town of 1770. The town was the site of Captain Cook’s second landing. A heritage memorial and quirky cafés make it a worthwhile trip. Swimming or snorkelling with dolphins and colourful fish at the Southern Great Barrier Reef is an essential experience. Other unmissable jaunts are riding a LARC amphibious vessel, a fishing cruise or a trip over to Lady Musgrave Island.
