Read on to find out more about our favourite hostel in Agnes Water, the legendary Cool Bananas!
You’ll find Agnes Water in between Airlie Beach and Rainbow Beach, making it the perfect rest stop for a couple of chill days between the epic experiences of Whitsundays & Fraser Island. So if you are ready to kick back in a hammock, relax, learn to surf for a few days and just switch off then Agnes is for you.
This spot is a RatPack fave because its cruisy, hippie and shoes are not allowed, it has beaut beaches, forests, kangaroos all over the place and the surf is perfect for beginners making it an epic place to learn.
Agnes Water/1770 is home to one of the most UNIQUE experiences in Aussie…. Did you ever watch shipwrecked or bear grylls the island and fancy yourself as a contestant? Well here you can do exactly that. The Castaway experience is what it says on the tin, you’ll be taken with a group to an island and tasked with fending for yourselves for a few days! Don’t panic though, you’ll be given all your supplies, sleeping gear and even kayaks for your time on the island. Expect to fish, hike and explore the island in true castaway style. Fancy it? Hit us U P for all the deets..
Whilst you are in Agnes, make the most of the epic surroundings and get exploring, head to the paperbark forest and wander through this magical spot, go see the kangaroos at the Horizon Kangaroo Sanctuary, and watch the sunset over 1770 after a walk through the butterfly forest.
If your keen to give surf lessons a go then we recommend doing it right here, scrap Bondi where you will be totally overcharged! Hit up Grom at reef to beach surf school, he’s a local LEGEND and will get you up on your board in no time, his lessons are around $17 for 2 or 3 hours last time we checked which is an absolute stellaaaa deal.
We love abit of this hippy little spot, expect to wear no shoes whilst you are here and make the most of the empty beaches and hammock time << thats abit of us FOR SURE…
