Cook's Lookout

In 1770 James Cook and Joseph Banks stood on this spot and surveyed the dreadful predicament that they and their companions faced a castaways on these shores. Cook: “In the a.m. I went myself upon the hill which is over the south point to take a view of the sea, at this time it was low water and I saw what gave me no small uneasiness which were a number of sandbanks or shoals laying along the coast… the only hopes I have of getting clear of them is to the northward where there seems to be a passages for as the wind blows constantly from the south east we shall find it difficult if not impractical to return to the southward.”
