Cooktown’s Endeavour River is the site where Lieutenant James Cook repaired his ship, Endeavour, after damaging it on the reefs off Cape Tribulation in 1770. James Cook, RN named the river in 1770 after he was forced to beach his ship, HMS Endeavour, for repairs in the river mouth, after damaging it on Endeavour Reef. The Endeavour River is one of two major rivers in the Cooktown area. The Endeavour River originates in the mountains north-west of Cooktown, while the Annan River starts in the mountains to the south-west.
