Endeavour River just inside the entrance. Cooktown.
The barque, Endeavour, was repaired on the shores of this side, below Grassy hill in 1770.
At dusk to the NW in Newcastle, Venus and Jupiter are seen close together and to the east a splendid full moon is rising for all humanity see. Here, the planets will set in several hours time.

Hot underground water is found over a vast area. Other spars were in some Queensland towns. The fresh water can be very smelly at first then it settles, some has too many minerals to safely use on the garden etc and is treated.
