Lookout Landmark
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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Grassy Hill and many more Cooktown attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Cooktown holiday planner.
