Sensational Views

The Cook monument in itself is not that interesting but it is well worth visiting to see the sensational views. The Rock formations and the colour of the sea are gorgeous.

Definitely one place you need to visit on Norfolk Island, you get a great view along the coastline with plenty of seabirds soaring past.

The quick walk from the carpark to the memorial is easy and the view will knock your socks off. Watching the birds was fascinating. But I think the description of the Bridle Walk to bird rock is incorrect. It says its an easy walk..with "some" steep bits. But! Its pretty much "UP"! I was attempting to walk to Mt Bates... More

We counted all the varieties very easily. Loved the place so much that we returned for another good look on the morning we left. Spectacular views from the cliff tops. Very good observation platform. Steep climb up the hill back to the car park but truely worth it.

On the North east side of the island, this is a little further out of town than most sites, but it's a small island. You'll enjoy the short walk and great views of the coast line.

We packed a picnic and had it at Captain Cooks memorial. The memorial is situated in the national park and has tables and bbq's. The area is well set out with a walkway to the memorial and further past it to the point, which gives you an awesome view of the rocky coastline. There are information boards around the walkway

You must visit this to see not only the historic sight but to get an impression of the wild beauty that is Norfolk Island. Look right and see the wild area where Cook is aid to have landed - look right and see the birdlife filled rocks. I saw this place on a clear warm day and on a grey... More
