Starting from the 1770 Headland carpark, this scenic walk offers breathtaking views of the Coral Sea and Bustard Bay.

The trail winds through beautiful dry rainforest, with glimpses of the surrounding ocean along the way. At the very tip, you’ll find a wooden platform deck with seating, perfect for taking in the panoramic views. This location is historically significant as it marks one of the landing sites of Captain James Cook during his voyage along the east coast of Australia in 1770.

For those up for a bit more adventure, you can combine the Headland Walk with the Butterfly Walk, starting near the 1770 monument and winding through lush rainforest.

Whether you’re a history buff, a nature lover, or a keen photographer, the 1770 Headland Walk promises a memorable experience. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore this stunning trail and immerse yourself in the natural beauty and historical significance of the 1770 coastline.
