The 1770 Anchor, located near the headland, is a significant historical landmark commemorating Captain James Cook’s landing in 1770. This large, rusted anchor is a reminder of the area’s rich maritime history and the adventurous spirit of early explorers. Visitors can enjoy panoramic views of the Coral Sea and Bustard Bay from this vantage point, making it perfect for reflection and photography.

Nearby, the amphitheatre lookout features a memorial dedicated to the six fishermen who tragically lost their lives when the FV Dianne sank off the Agnes Water coast in 2017. This peaceful lookout provides a space for visitors to pay their respects and contemplate the bravery of the fishing community. The serene setting and breathtaking views offer a tranquil escape amidst the natural beauty of the 1770 coastline.
