On 2nd June 1770 Captain Cook was the first European to see Cape Hillsborough. He named the area after the Earl of Hillsborough. 90 years later the first farms had been founded there. The resort we are at just now was developed in the year I was born. Guess how old I am 😉
Anyway the Cape Hillsborough Resort nowadays is a gorgeous area to spend a week or more to get this laid back feeling after a very active time in Queensland.
Highlight: The beach of Wedge Island and its Mangrove forests
