Day 17 - Today we went for a tour of the town and was even more impressed with the general feel of Cooktown. We looked at the site where Captain Cook beached the Endeavour for repairs and other interesting historical sites. We also went for a walk through the botanical gardens and arranged a guided tour of some local aboriginal rock art with an aboriginal elder, Willie Gordon. To meet him for the start of the tour, we drove out through the Hopevale aboriginal settlement and watched some of the Cowboys rugby league team having a clinic with the local aboriginal kids.
