Located between Cooks Beach and Flaxmill Bay is Shakespeare Cliff. A very short track leads up to this vantage point and wonderful views over Mercury Bay. The cairn records the arrival in 1769 of the HM Bark Endeavour under the command of Lieutenant Captain James Cook. As part of Cook's first voyage of discovery, he was tasked, along with the Astromoner Charles Green, with observing the Transit of the Planet Mercury across the face of the Sun. This was done on the beach below and approx 3km from this cairn. The bay was named Mercury Bay and the islands seen in the far distance became the Mercury Islands. The beach and the small settlement that grew up here became known as Cooks Beach. Coincidentally, this phot was taken on 5th November 2009. Cook first arrived here on 5th November 1769 and stayed until the 15th. So, exactly 240 years to the day, we were following in Cook's footsteps.

They are very solid, functional buildings, they serve their purposes well, but architecturally uninspiring, ugly even, perhaps. Its good some newer and different styles are being added to the campus now - the School of Dentistry and the Cairns Institute.
