We visited Captain Cook's Monument on a self drive outing. This allowed time to explore the surrounding coast line etc. Very well kept grounds - neat and tidy.

Captain Cook's Monument is well worth a visit. Located in the National Park, it is surrounded by well kept grounds and magnificent views. There is a lovely board walk down towards the monument as well as clean toilets, picnic tables, parking area and seating. We were very impressed with all the bird life we saw, (and heard). The views are... More

You can wander around the point following the walking tracks in and out of the trees. There are chairs along the way to rest but it is steep. Great exercise and views.

The Captain Cook monument overlooks beautiful Duncombe Bay and lots of little islands that have been given names. Have a picnic in the park. Lots of tables and benches.

The monument dedicated to where it was thought that Captain Cook landed is simple with a small plaque stating as such. THe views from the platforms at the edge of the cliff as spectacular - postcard pictures. The views of the ocean and the cliffs are breath-taking.

Another stunning view. The Island authorities are to be congratulated on keeping the place so pristine and tourist friendly. Well worth the drive to the top of the Isalnd.

You can either drive to the site or find it at the end of a number of walking trails from Mt Pitt and other set off points in the area. It is calm and serene with a great view over the rocky beach where Cook landed in 1774. On a nice day it would be a good area for a... More
