Captain Cook first sighted the shores of Australia in 1770 from the Endeavour,and this magnificent point off the south east cost of Australia was named Point Hicks after a crewman on board. Having lived its days keeping people from its shores, it now welcomes them to experience the exhilarating and remote location, in historic oregon and baltic pine cottages with cosy wood fires. A totally eco friendly wilderness retreat, the cottages can sleep up to 8 guests, with a basic bungalow available also. Great for family groups or friends wanting to get together. The lighthouse is the tallest on mainland Australia, climb it and see for miles. You can walk secluded beaches, view the Whales from June to early December, snorkel, canoe, hike or just take in the glorious 220 degree views. This is one of those experiences you must do in your lifetime.
