In May1770, Lieutenant James Cook anchored the Endeavour off this part of the coast near Round Hill Head.,

Cook went ashore near Round Hill Head with botanist Joseph Banks and his assistant Daniel Solander. It was only the second time during the voyage that he had set foot on Australian soil and his first venture on dry land at what is now called Queensland.

Every May since 1991, a re-enactment of Cook’s landing has been staged as part of the annual 1770 Festival.
