    First Time at 1770

    Hi all,

    Im heading to 1770 between Xmas and New Years for a week, I will be taking my 6.5m SeaHunt CC so hope to get out on the water as much as possible.

    So far from what I have read not really a great time of the year to be there due to influx of tourists and also generally windy conditions.

    I'm looking for advice on all aspects of a first timers trip to the area such areas to take the family out on the boat for a day trip, recommended areas to fish both inshore and offshore. Is there really a lack of parking at the boat ramp unless your their real early?

    Cheers in advance

    That time of year yes boat ramp parking can get to be an issue. You will get a park somewhere up the road, just may be a hike to get there and back.

    Bustard Head inner, middle and outer rock are starting places. Head out further to Musgrave etc. All these are marked on various internet sources.

    Good luck and enjoy, top spot. I will be up there from 10th 18th Dec before the madness begins

    Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

    Yes there have been reports of tampering (I.e. vandelism) and theft at that ramp but then plenty of people will say they have parked there with no problems. .
