Experience Cooktown's world famous history

Cooktown is the gateway to the Heritage Wilderness of the Cape York Peninsula and the Great Barrier Reef; it is one of the most diverse and unspoiled travel destinations in Queensland.

Cooktown was the first true European settlement on Australian soil, founded in 1873 as a port for the Palmer River Gold fields, it has a rich history of European settlement, Aboriginal, cultural and natural historical developments. Every June the town celebrates with a re-enactment of the landing of Captain Cook to repair the Endeavour after striking the reef.
