Global Circumnavigation

Home » Uncategorized » So the reason for the epic side trip to Cooktown was to go see the place were James Cook and the crew of the endeavour ran ashore on the great barrier reef in 1770 well doing there first circumnavigation of the world by sea. They had to make temporary repairs in the same inlet that is now referred to as Cooktown and endeavour river that runs next to the town. Just south of Cooktown is Mount Cook where the following videos were taken showing the location on the great barrier reef or lieutenant James Cook commanding endeavour ran a ground. I could just imagine him and his crew climbing to the top of this hill during there 7 weeks here, to look out at the same view, as most of the land is still protected areas and relatively untouched.
