Grassy Hill, Cooktown

4.9
From the top of Grassy Hill, enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view of Cooktown, Endeavor River, and the Coral Sea. You can reach the lookout by a spiral path or steep steps leading to the summit. Captain Cook climbed this hill to figure out a safe way to sail out through the reef. If you want to go for a swim, descend by another walking path to Cherry Tree Bay beach.

  • Magic view from the grassy hill lookout..you can drive to the top with a little walk from the carpark ...dissabled parking at the memorial at the top. Worth the drive up there.  more »

  • Great lookout at any time but especially for a sunset picnic. Spectacular 360' views over Cooktown and Endeavour River with heaps of fabulous interpretative material on the windy road up.
