The grassy hill lookout provides outstanding panoramic views over Cooktown and District and there is a beautiful lighthouse at the peak.

You can feel of Captain Cook surveying the landscape and Seascape. Fantastic views of Cooktown itself, and out to sea.

Decided to head upto Grassy Hill point on our last day in Cooktown. Wow what a treat! The views from the lighthouse in every direction are extraordinary! I recommend an early visit whilst staying in Cooktown!

Worth the visit up the hill. Interesting information boards scattered around the top of the lookout.

The views from here make this a must do visit on the tourist trail. You can get a great 360 panorama of the ocean and the Endeavour inlet, and surrounds

The drive/walk up grassy hill offers spectacular panoramas of the Cooktown area and a beautifully renovated lookout site featuring tributes to all those involved. Great spot to watch the sunset, but limited parking, so leave the RVs and caravans behind.

The walk up from the carpark is worth it once you see the amazing views of the Endeavour River and the coastline.

Great views of the coast line, the heads and the Endevour River, a step walk from town but you can also drive up.

The views from the lookout are great. East to the Coral Sea and Barrier Reef, west to the mountains and overlooking the Endeavour River. Great for sunrise and sunset photos.
