Fisherman's Wharf

Once one of the busiest ports in Queensland during the Gold Rush days, is now a popular meeting place and fishing spot for toursits and locals. 'Doing a wharfie' (driving along the wharf) is a favourite Cooktown tradition.  This is also the starting point of the River of Life Walkway which meanders through parkland to the Post Office, telling the stories behind the historic sights you pass along the way.

There are numerous waterfalls to venture to from Cooktown - Isabella Falls & Endeavour Falls to the North of Cooktown and Trevethan Falls, Home Rule Falls & Bloomfield Falls to the South of Cooktown.
