It's worth walking out to the fenced in cliff edge to take in the magnificent scenery. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful lookout and great walks. Well kept and worth a few hours of your time - even though it rained this time we sat under the Norfolk Pines and kept relatively dry. It's a great place to chill.

The walk is easy and the views are spectacular. Like everything on Norfolk Island is was spotlessly clean and had great nearby amenities. Make sure you have your camera.

Beautiful spot for a romantic or family picnic. Sunset quite spectacular. The ocean views from here are interesting. Some good walks begin here as well so pack in hiking boots as well.

You park your car and walk to the Monument, the picture boards tell you all about Captain Cooks landing and you can see the site.
