2nd cumming of Captain CookThe 2nd Cumming of Captain Cook

The 2nd Cumming of Captain Cook brought to you by the Cooktown H3.

A weekend celebration of Cooktown HHH 1770th run (Capt Cook came here in year 1770 the first time).

So why is it the 2nd Cumming of Captain Cook

Cooktown is a pretty spot at the end of the road north on the RH side of Australia.

Captain Cook dropped by in 1770 after running his boat the Endeavour onto a reef – pissed again, no doubt.

By a complete coincidence, the boat limped into the Endeavour River – how about that?

You wouldn’t read about it…

The guys camped on the foreshore because they were too cheap to book a motel or proper camp site (we have several)

They were eventually kicked out by the Shire which has no sense of humour at all.

They didn’t look around much while they were here, even though Cairns is only 4 hours down the road and they could have taken a bus or even rented a car.

They didn’t take to Aussie beer either, saying it was too cold and bubbly.

They preferred flat Pommy beer, with chewy bits, served at room temperature.

The 2nd Cumming of Captain Cook Itinerary:
