Captain Cook 1770 Festival
In 2018 we will be holding the inaugural 1770  Festival Fun Run a 5.7k and 3k fun runs.

The Captain Cook 1770 Festival is an annual event commemorating the visit of the HMB Endeavour and the landing of Lt. James Cook and his party on May 24, 1770, in Bustard Bay at Seventeen Seventy, as it is now known. This was the first landing for Cook and his crew in Queensland, and only the second landing in Australia (the first being Botany Bay).The 1770 Festival also promotes and educates visitors of the indigenous history of the area. The Gurang people are the traditional owners and on the morning of the main festival activities, you can enjoy “Welcome to Country” and performances of traditional dances to the sound of didgeridoos. Come and watch “live history” with the re-enactment of Cook’s landing on Friday 25 May on the foreshore of 1770. Authentic costumes and historical accuracy of the script make for a special evening.
