Visit the Big Captain Cook

Cairns, Queensland

Size: 7 meters x 2 meters

The Big Captain Cook has stood tall on the Captain Cook Highway in Cairns for almost forty years. The statue was originally designed as the mascot for a public bar, however, the measurements were mixed up and the statue turned out a lot bigger than expected. The statue is a tribute to Captain James Cook who is attributed to being the first white man to discover Australia back in 1770.
