|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Cooktown (in far north Queensland) is named after the explorer James Cook who had to spend several months there in 1770 repairing his ship after it had hit a reef.|
The town later developed as a port for gold mining with grand buildings such as this one being built in the late 19th century. This was, I think a bank.
