The Discovery Coast climate is best described as perfect, with more than 280 days of sunshine each year. Imagine swimming in crystal clear waters, unwinding on your own deserted beach, kayaking or kite surfing beside dolphins playing, sailing and bushwalking. This is the essence of  Discovery Coast – untouched, exclusive and pure - attracts people from many different walks of life; the sheer range and variety of accommodation options, from backpacker facilities to comfortable motels and units to 5-star resorts and homes with million dollar views, reflects the true nature and diversity of the area.

Miriam Vale is located on the Bruce Highway 475 kilometres north of Brisbane, with the main North South rail line passing through the town. A quaint township features a mixture of buildings, including some fine old structures in the timber 'Queenslander' style and a Heritage Fig Tree adorns the parkland and war memorial opposite the towns hotel. The town serves as the main gateway to the delightful Discovery Coast towns of Agnes Water and Seventeen Seventy, Eurimbula, Baffle Creek, and Deepwater National Parks

The picturesque coastline of the twin seaside communities of Agnes Water and Town of 1770 create an exciting and appealing multitude of experiences. Famously known as the birthplace of Queensland, Seventeen Seventy was named after Lieutenant James Cook and his crew from the 'Endeavour' who came ashore on 24 May 1770. It is coastal departure point for many reef trip operators and fishing charters to the Southern Great Barrier Reef.

The Baffle Creek area, including Wartburg and Rules Beach is situated just south of Agnes Water on the Discovery Coast and is a tranquil coastline, offering spectacular scenery and breathtaking surrounds. There are excellent opportunities for coastal recreation such as swimming, fishing and boating as well as a number of four-wheel drive adventures – fun for the whole family! Historical Bustard Heads lighthouse is an experience also not to be missed whilst in the area.
