Great lookout. Recommend that you visit during the day for a wonderful panorama of the town of Cooktown across the Endeavour River Estuary and then out to Coral Sea. Make a second visit for the sunset over the Endeavour River.
Basically in town, it would be possible to walk up but for some this may be a bit strenuous. Limited car parking is available near the summit where there are pleasantly laid out grounds, information boards and views in all directions.

Grassy Mountain had breathtaking views over the blue Coral Sea. Then on the other side the entrance to The Endeavour River. It was interesting to see the Lighthouse & imagine a family used to live there.
The history in Cooktown is truly wonderful.
