“Fantastic View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Don't leave Cooktown without taking a trip up the hill for a 360* view. Great at sunrise or sunset or any time in between.

“Excellent view of Cooktown & Surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

This lookout is a short drive from the heart of town and take less than 3 minutes by car. If your fitness inclined you can walk or run to the top! Parking on the top is free and ample.

Once at the top you have a gorgeous 360 degree view! Go see it!
