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.

Make sure you take a drive up here, even if you don't wish to do the walks (we're saving them for next time!). The lookout and surroundings are superb.

This is a very well kept area with magnificent views. There is a walk around the gully across to the cliffs on the other side. Great rock formations to look at.
