Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

1770 was the year Captain James Cook landed there, his second landing on the Australian east coast on that voyage.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

1770 is the name of the town. North of Agnes Water, and the southern end of Bustard Bay.

It does look like the view from the town of Seventeen Seventy, about 5.5 km NNW of Agnes Water. I didn't get the "1770", either.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It is beautiful, and when camping there we saw a new cruising yacht every day or two, coming into the deep but narrow river for a stopover.

The coral lagoon you'll see in the Google Images result is Lady Musgrave, about 30nm off the coast there. A day cruise boat leaves from Seventeen Seventy. It's stunning out there too!

You're it, ebs.

Bugger ... I looked at 1770 but couldn't find the camping ground. Google Earth quality of that whole area is pretty damn ordinary.
