Originally known as Round Hill – after the creek it sits on – the name was changed in 1970 to commemorate the bicentenary of Cook's visit. The community of Seventeen Seventy hold the re-enactment of this historic landing each year as part of the 1770 Festival held in May.Official nameAlthough the town is referred to locally as "1770", the official name of the town is Seventeen Seventy, as it is principle of Queensland's place naming that numbers are spelled out.GeographyThe village is a tourist destination on Queensland's Discovery Coast.
