Cooktown's Grassy Hill Lookout

Blog posted by: Admin on 04 Jan 2018

On your Cape York tour the stop at Cooktown is definitely worth driving up Grassy Hill Lookout and seeing the views all around this historical little town. Captain Cook must have taken hours to get up there while your tour bus drives up there in minutes. There is a road right up to the top with parking areas and quite informative with plaques bearing it's history through Captain James Cook and his men. With the lighthouse standing idle but the colourful ocean view from up there is worth seeing. Do not miss it because I think that unless you have been to Grassy Hill and seen it you haven't seen Cooktown quite like you should. A must see on your Cape York tour from Cairns.
