Amazing views of Cooktown, Endeavour river and beyond. Be prepared for a steep climb, but the views are well worth it!

Ok we did drive up here, but many people were walking up the hill. The view makes it all worthwhile. Great way to get an understanding of the layout of town. Highly recommend a visit.

Grab some Fish and Chips to enjoy a fantastic sunset. 360 degrees views with lighthouse with history of Cooktown to displays. However, get up early and with a quick walk up the hill you will witness the magic sunrise!

Hard to beat this spot, stunning. Bit blowy today, hang on to your hat, but don't miss it! So easy to find with parking available, as a bit steep for walking in hot weather.
