I agree that the two articles should be merged. What is the official name of the town? Is it 1770, or Town of 1770? In either case, the naming convention suggests that it shoud be ***, Queensland. -- Adz 12:17, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

I agree, the two articles should be merged. As for the towns official name, Geoscience Australia suggests that Seventeen Seventy is the town's official name, used by the Gazetteer of Australia. Geoscience Australia QazPlm 05:59, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

When u travel around this area, the name actually used on traffic signs is "Town of 1770", and its also the name used in different travel guides, i never seen that its just "1770"... so it should be renamed, i guess --NPunkt (talk) 11:27, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Official name is in non-digit form[edit]

I believe that the town's offical name is "Town of Seventeen-Seventy". It was changed so that, on maps, its clearly a town (Seventeen-seventy) rather than a height marker for a mountain. (1770). — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:41, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Agree that the name of this article should be changed to "Seventeen Seventy", as per the official name - although Wikipedia searches for "1770" should redirect here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Roar Menace (talkcontribs) 03:13, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
