#6 of 12 Outdoor Activities in Cooktown
It's only a short drive from Cooktown and well signposted with good parking.It was a very easy walk to the bird hide, listening to all the birds along the way.
Just a few km out of Cooktown down Mulligan Highway, I would call this a hidden gem despite its close proximity to the highway.
#10 of 12 Outdoor Activities in Cooktown
Initially, a very well made trail leaves the parking area and goes to a vantage point with lovely views back over the township and Endeavour River: pretty well a north-northwesterly aspect.
This is a great hike starting out gently, leading to the cantilevered viewpoint of the town and Endeavour river that rivals Grassy Hill.
