Artist's Description

Captain Cook named this island when he sailed up the coast, his ship had a very close shave near rocks at now called Tweed Heads & named the rocks Point Danger. Cook noticed a mountain in the distance & named it Mount Warning because it looked like a finger pointing. It had been a volcano up to 22 million years ago, and the bent top is the plug. The rocks at Fingal Head & Point Danger are basalt that the ocean constantly batters.

Those names still stand today. We have been enjoying visiting this beautiful area and are still here with more to explore before we move on.
N.S.W. North Coast & Hinterland.
