Historic as the second landing site of James Cook and the crew of the Endeavour in May 1770, the area is rich in wildlife and natural beauty and offers scenic vistas in every direction. The Joseph Banks Environmental Park preserves much of the peninsula with fauna and flora indicative of the area. Rugged granite rocky outcrops, both an outer surf and inner stillwater beach, and holiday accommodation in houses, apartments and two caravan and camping parks cater for visitors.

Two restaurants are located here, as is a general store and small marina. Agnes Water township and beach is located eight kilometres south.

Seventeen Seventy is also a departure point for reef cruises and fishing charters to the Southern Great Barrier Reef. Day tours and wilderness camping transfers operate to nearby Lady Musgrave Island. Day tours also operate to the historic Bustard Heads lighthouse. For the camping enthusiast, four National Parks including Deepwater, Eurimbula, Mount Colosseum and Round Hill offer wilderness camping and hiking.
