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.

The restful panoramic vista will keep you enthralled... ... oh, and by the way, you'll pick up some interesting history and facts about Cpt. Cook's landing on the island. All in all, definitely...

Captain cooks monument is fabulous. It is on the coast of the national park. The views are spectacular. There are picnic tables for supplied for resting & lunch. On the descent to the monument there is a 2 tiered platform for visitors to view the scenery. This is a must on a visit to Norfolk Island.

The walk to the Monument is well worth it - the views are spectacular. The Australian Government pays to maintain this area and it is very well looked after with good facilities. Take a picnic lunch and enjoy this beautiful spot :)

The monument itself is quite modest but the coastal scenery is superb. The land drops steeply down to a picturesque sea dotted with 'apostles' (islets).

Perfect picnic spot with lovely boardwalk to take in the views of the cliffs, the rocks and the crashing waves. Plenty of picnic tables with very well appointed toilet facilities. Very highly recommended. Pristine..quiet.
