Awesome coastal viewpoint

It is worth going to this monument for the views alone and there are also walking tracks nearby with great coastal views and birdlife.

what must it have looked like when he saw it? The hill passed the monument is a bit of a climb, and not for wet weather. The coast line is breathtaking.

The Capt Cook monument is a historical area, and is well presented with board walks, information plaques and stunning viewing areas of the Norfolk Island coast line. This is in the same area as the Bedrock Cafe and you can synchronise a visit to both that are in the same area. Recommended.

As with all places on Norfolk Island, plaques are placed with history of the area you're in - don't miss reading these. This place (like most on NI) has amazing scenery and its worth the effort walking down the hill.

We visited Cook's monument late in the afternoon. A peaceful spot, we were able to watch the local birds nesting & flying around the offshore rocks, and there were lovely views of the area.

Awesome views!! Pristine Azure blue/green waters, and the rocks, cliff face just added to the beauty! We didn't have time to do the couple of walks, but just enjoyed afternoon tea... More

This is a great place to view a storm out to sea. To watch the rain passing over is very special just remember to take your rain coat. It is a bit steep on the walk down to the lookout so take care, but well worth it.

A great viewing platform to see Norfolk's spectacular coastline in both directions. Excellent picnic and BBQ facilities and a good base to commence a few different walks through the National Park. A must see when on Norfolk.
