Cooktown Flights GuideCooktown's historic side is palpable: it's where the first settlement in Australia occurred with Captain James Cook (hence, the name). Learn more about this historic moment at the James Cook Museum, the Captain Cook Statues, and the Cooktown Cemetery. Observe the Black Mountain (Kalkajaka) National Park, where you'll sway to live music, hike the trails, and enjoy the park life. Or, camp near the Endeavour River National Park, with the beautiful views of the rivers. Don't forget to enjoy the charm of a small town on the seaside.
Drive a little over four hours to get to Cairns. There is significant rainfall in the summer months of December through February, and much less rain in April through July. Visit during that drier period, as the temperatures seldom vary.
Fly to Cooktown from these popular routes with great prices.
