Cooktown its worth the drive. The views from the top of the lookout over the Endeavour river and ocean are fantastic, so is the local walk with the ceramic tiles depicting the story of the local indigenous people. Rosalee jogged up to the lookout and jogged back.

I went to the cultural centre of Cooktown the “pub” to watch the State Of Origin with Mr T and it was very entertaining, the locals not the footy. NSW were smashed 24-6. Oh well there is always next time.

  1. Not sure if the pub was more fascinating or frightening!! It was certainly an eye opener, and I needed every drop of Dutch courage from the fanta to sit so close to the action

  2. Lovely picture! You guys look relax and super cool. Great to see you Rosalee- where’s next adventure? love xxx
