an easy walk along the boardwalk and seats put here and there for those people who might want to sit and take in the sights. Information signs placed where you need them so you know what you are looking at, really worth a visit.. toilets situated in the perfect place for your walk too.

Captain Cook's Monument is well worth a visit. You have a board-walk for part of the way and if you continue past the monument down to the lookout you have spectacular views and more information about the island. Fascinating to see all the rocks just out from Captain Cook lookout and how appropriate their names were.

Stayed at Whitewood Sea, private house booked through Norfolk Island Tourist Bureau who were very good. Extremely well appointed and great views across to Philip Island. Thoroughly recommended. The Island is fantastic, great weather (end of March} coral, fish easy to see at Emily Beach, no diving gear needed.

When you go to the monument you will have great views. However, if you take a walk along Bridle Track, which starts there, you will be blown away!

Lovely views from the point. If you are into bushwalking, this is the spot with short and long walks along undulating tracks.

We drove to the monument which is in part of the National Park. It's only a short walk from the car park to the monument and then down to a scenic lookout. The views were amazing so make sure you have your camera. It was also extremely windy. Great place to visit.

There are breathtaking views from the lookout at Captain Cook's Monument. The Monument itself needs to be cleaned a bit to enable a better reading and appreciation of the inscription. Also, sad to see the grassed area completely browned by the army grub.

While I enjoyed the walk to reach this monument, the monument itself is nothing to write home about. The view from the lookout beyond is beautiful with information boards provided on the local bird life and the adjacent islands.

Hard to believe so many historical monuments, especially this one. On top of hill with gorgeous views of coastline. Pinetree Tours stop here on their half-day tours.
