Cooktown

The adventure to Cooktown begins along the 350-kilometre inland highway or 4WD coastal route via the Bloomfield Track from Cairns. 

Lay of the land

  • Stroll the wide welcoming streets, lined with grand Queensland architecture from the bygone gold rush days, and the botanic gardens filled with 62-hectares of native and exotic plants.
  • Anglers can cast a lure on a guided tour and explore the river estuary day or night for barramundi.

History repeated

  • Dress up with proud locals to celebrate the landing of Captain James Cook and his interaction with Indigenous Guugu Yimithirr people, with a three-day festival each June. 
  • Take an educational journey into Aboriginal culture over a meal with an elder or enlist a guide to hike to rock-art sites high in the hills.
