|Camera : Canon EOS 30D
10:36am on 28 June 2008. A view of the Endeavour River, taken from atop Grassy Hill. The township of Cooktown lies to the left of this image on the banks of the Endeavour River. The aboriginal story of the creation of the River can be read on a plaque at this spot, and reads:
“Many thousands of years ago when the land was young, Dyirimadhi, the black bird, threw a rock at Mungurru, the scrub python. The python’s head was flattened by the impact. In pain, Mungurru fled to the sea.
“His passage cut a channel in the land to form the Endeavour River. Mungurru reached the sea at Gan.garr, now known to most visitors as Cooktown.”
