Once we land in Cooktown your pilot/host will show all around this heritage town and its special places of interest like the views from Grassy Hill and the fascinating James Cook Museum (when open).

 As you walk around Cooktown you will be taken back in time to the arrival of Captain Cook in 1770 and you will learn where he beached his ship Endeavour for repairs.

You host will tell tales of the old gold rush days, and talk about the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history in the region.

On our return flight Cooktown to Cairns we fly over the mysterious Black Mountains, the Bloomfield River and the lush rainforest covered mountains of the Daintree Rainforest and see the point that Captain Cook named Cape Tribulation.
