Grassy Hill Lighthouse

Grassy Hill Lighthouse Review

A strenuous, not especially scenic walk or short drive from Cooktown lie Grassy Hill and the Lighthouse, spectacular lookouts affording panoramic views of Cooktown, the Endeavour River, and the Coral Sea. Follow in the footsteps of Captain James Cook, who scaled the slope to view the reef and navigate his boat's safe passage out. The lighthouse, shipped from England in 1885, helped boats avoid the reef for a century before being rendered obsolete; it was then restored as a historical relic.
