Cooktown has previously been known as a frontier destination in Far Northern Queensland with its quirky characters and a great pioneering history from the sea faring days of Captain Cook landing here in 1770 after sailing all the way from England in a timber boat with Joseph Banks the botanist and Daniel Solander the naturalist and acclaimed botanist along with a hard working crew mixed in with a few paying civilians.
Nowadays there is a nice highway that you can travel along quite comfortably to reach Cooktown and you can also book a nice motel with great views over the Endeavour River.
