Seventeen Seventy, also known as 1770, is a village in Queensland, Australia. The town today is built on the site of Lieutenant Cook's first landing in Queensland on the Endeavour in May 1770. The town was originally known as Round Hill but the name was changed in 1970 to commemorate the bicentennial of Cook's visit.

Seventeen Seventy (1770) can be reached by a tarred road from Bundaberg, 120 kilometres to the south, going through Agnes Water. The town sustains a small permanent population; a significant holiday population makes it to the area to take advantage of fishing, Great Barrier Reef trips and other water activities.

Four national parks in the surrounding area are Deepwater, Eurimbula, Mount Colosseum, and Round Hill. These all offer wilderness camping and hiking.
