Artist's Description

Taken on Grassy Hill, Cooktown, far north Queensland, Australia.
It was from this vantage point in 1770 that Captain James Cook surveyed the surrounding reefs to navigate safe passage after repairing his ship.
The Cooktown Lighthouse was built in England and shipped out to Cooktown in 1885 where it served the local community and shipping in the area for 100 years or so before being made obsolete, it has since been restored and stands as a testament to bygone days.
