Cooktown is a charming historical town, un-spoiled by the urgency of modern life. Its close proximity to nearby reefs, deserted beaches, and river systems make it an ideal fishing destination. While it is best known for its endemic wildlife, culture, history, bird watching, and infamous barramundi stocks the region is an enchanting place to call home.
Real Estate in 2020 is much better than in previous years. Most investors are buying to live in the region’s unspoiled pandemic free environment. The region’s growth is unlikely to match the likes of other places or lose its frontier charm in a hurry. In 2020 Cooktown and Cape York were able to shut the door to immediately stop the Wuhan COVID-19 pandemic from reaching residents and remote communities. This event made Cape York incredibly safe from this health scare. In 2021 Cooktown and the whole of Australia will celebrate 251 years since the arrival of Captain Cook.
