We drove up to this headland to see the monument and read about the history of Cooks landing. It was a perfect day and the scenery was breathtaking. All very well tended - the walkway was helpful

Its taken me three visits to get out here and it was well worth it. The views are magnificent, it's a great place for a picnic and the walks are great. And good clean toilets.

Great views, weather was lovely that day and the walk through the national park was lovely. It looked hard work when they landed on the island there with the steep cliffs and rugged ground

We could view the sunset here. We didn't have time for the many walks. Locals told us they sometimes see whales there.

Great grassy area for picnics with clean toilets. Timber walkway facilitate views which are awe inspiring. Short walk up a grassy slope to monument then on to viewing platform with more ocean views. There are other walks that start from here too if you want to go on. Good parking at this site

A drive out to Captain Cook's Monument, we were the only ones there on the day, so extremely peaceful and great photo opportunities and take binoculars to watch the seabirds on the Islands just off the coastline!

A great spot to go take in a picnic and relax in the sun, the views of the wild coastline are worth taking the drive

The views from Captain Cook's monument are breathtaking and a must see. If you can manage the walk you need to walk down to the lookout as the views are unbelievable. The water is so blue and you can see for miles. It's a very peaceful spot and very relaxing to just stand and enjoy the scenery. The walk back... More
