Make your own way to Hinterland Aviation [7 Tom McDonald Drive, Cairns] for your flight to Cooktown. Enjoy a scenic flight over the same waters that Captain Cook sailed through in 1770. Marvel at the views of the Coral Sea, catch glimpses of the Great Barrier Reef, rugged coastline, World Heritage rainforest and mountains.

Our driver/guide will meet you at Cooktown’s airport then our first stop is Grassy Hill. Enjoy the beautiful views of Cooktown and surrounds; it was from here Captain Cook surveyed his route through the Great Barrier Reef.

We then make our way to the quaint township of Cooktown for a guided walk of the Esplanade and its many points of interest including Reconciliation Rocks – where the first act of reconciliation between Aboriginal people and Europeans happened.

We then visit the James Cook Museum, see an original anchor and cannon from Cook’s HMB Endeavour amongst many other interesting exhibits. After lunch, explore the Heritage Listed Cooktown Botanic Gardens on a guided walk - see living plant specimens collected by Daniel Solander and Joseph Banks in 1770.

Travelling the Mulligan Highway, we stop briefly at Black Mountain, Byerstown Range Lookout & the Palmer River Roadhouse. The outback landscape is dotted with termite mounds and many different eucalypt species. Keep an eye out for livestock that graze along the roadside before we return you to your accommodation.
