Cooktown Historical Society
The Cooktown History Centre will close their doors to the public for the foreseeable future. This does not mean that they won't be manning their e-mails or taking research requests or book orders. Those volunteers who wish to and feel well, will continue to work behind the close doors. The Cooktown Historical Society apologises in advance for the inconvenience but are sure you all will understand. It has also been announced that the big Cooktown Exop 2020 will be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Plans are under way for the rescheduled of the event which was to be held in July to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the landing of Captain James Cook and the first recorded act of reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
