Norfolk Island…Captain Cook Monument

Captain James Cook stopped briefly on the northern coast of Norfolk Island on his journey to discover Australia. He saw the gigantic pine trees and thought the wood would be make perfect masts for his fleet. However he soon found the wood is too soft and moved his fleet of ships on to their next destination.

A monument to his brief stay has been erected. From the monument, you can see more beautiful, rugged coastline.
