The New Kids In Town

Updated: Apr 12

Say hello to a number of new businesses in Agnes Water/1770


The past year has been a strange one with many changes for many people.

Here in Agnes Water and the Town of 1770, the past 12 months have brought us quite a few new businesses and a bit of art. Something new and exciting for our little town(s).


1. 1770 GELATO CO

A brand new gelato shop has opened up in the centre of Agnes Water.

They serve more than 30 flavours of premium gelato made with local milk, including vegan options.

You can find the 1770 Gelato shop on the corner of Captain Cook Drive and Round Hill Road - opposite the Caltex servo.
