Pre-purchased ticket required. Based on Captain Cook’s seven week stay on the Banks of the Endeavour River, Cooktown can authentically lay claim to Australia’s first recorded act of reconciliation. The first contact story is of central importance to the beginning of Australia’s modern history and in the spirit of reconcilation,we are sharing it with people from Australia and the world. Join Loretta Sullivan (President of the Cooktown Re-enactment Association) and Alberta Hornsby (local Indigenous historian and language specialist) as they share the stories and ethos of ‘two cultures, one people’.
