Gladstone Region 1770 Festival
Every May, locals and visitors reflect on Cook’s legacy of exploration; his incredible cartography skills and documented observations of Country and First Peoples. Free Entry
Traditional custodians the Gooreng Gooreng have participated in the organisation of the 1770 Festival, presented and shared their culture with Festival attendees since the 1770 Festival’s inception in 1992, which has become a collaborative platform increasing the involvement of the traditional custodians and promoting global cultural unity while celebrating historic local “Encounters in Country” together.
