Cooktown Cooktown - QLD Landmarks

Landmark: Cooktown
Address: Mulligan Highway, Cooktown, 4895, QLD

Cooktown is situated in the far north of Tropical North Queensland where a celebration takes place every June in recognition of its standing as Australia's first European settlement with a re-enactment of Captain Cook's landing at the Cooktown Endeavour festival. The unspoilt natural environment adds to its rare appeal of a town that has had its fair share of hard knocks. Learn about Cooktown's captivating past at the James Cook Historical Museum and discover the trials and tribulations of Captain Cook's expeditions and gold rush days of yester year.

Having been geographically isolated for many years can be attributed to this flawless landscape of virtually untouched paradise. Grassy Hill Lookout provides 360 degree vistas of beach and countryside, a truly beautiful sight and if you can drag yourself away, take the walking trail leading to Cherry Tree Bay.
