1770 Festival in 2020

For the 28th year, we are celebrating the day when the first European tourists set foot on this land. 

On 24 May 1770, 250 years ago, the crew of the HM Bark Endeavour, captained by Lt James Cook, experienced their first Encounters in our Country.

During a 26-day period, we are showcasing our towns of Seventeen Seventy and Agnes Water, so you can experience all we have to offer in this beautiful part of the world.

Endeavour to be here, as we, with our traditional custodians, Gooreng Gooreng commemorate our own Encounters in Country, in what is now a multicultural Australia.
