This was one of our favourite places. You could almost imagine Captain Cook and his crew scrambling ashore. The scenery was breathtaking.

We had been before, but enjoyed this visit. The views are outstanding, the drive in is good and the facilities like picnic tables and toilet blocks are appreciated. It is also the perfect spot to start an extended walk on one of the many walking tracks.

It was interesting to see where Cook was thought to have first seen Norfolk Island. The monument itself is nothing special, but the location is gorgeous. Small islands, beautiful blue sea and sky and Norfolk Island pines. Beautiful. There is a fantastic walk along the coast starting just up from the Monument which is well worth doing.

The views fron here are stunning and worth the trip to the memorial. A bit of a sharp climb back up the hill from the memorial.

I've been visiting various Captain Cook monuments and museums in various places around the world so wouldn't have passed up the opportunity here. A nice spot with good views and a chance for bird watching as well as the starting point for some of the walks.

You really need a hire car to visit this attraction but it is well worth the visit as there is so much history and the views are breath taking

This is a beautiful monument and well kept grounds with fantastic views of the coast line. There is a board walk and fantastic opportunities to take photos of the great coast line or have a picnic in the grounds.

It is worth the drive to the northern part to the island to see where Cook first sighted Norfolk and claimed it for the English crown. The boardwalks and grassy areas are great and it goes without saying that the views and wildlife are stunning. I'd pop into the Bedrock Cafe on the way home and see the cliffs from... More

The spectacular views from this spot. Along the coastline and the named rocks as well. You can see Bedrock Tea house from here. Plenty of parking and well worth the visit.
