Cooktown, Qld
James Cook was a navigator in the war. He was a sailor and an explorer. James Cook was born in Oct 1728. His ship was called the Endeavour.

James Cook got killed by Hawaians. He went to Australia. He got to a bay – he called it Stingray Bay. It is now called Botany Bay. He crashed the ship in the Great Barrier Reef. So, he did not sink, they threw things overboard.

Red Tingle Trees Information Report

They are the biggest tree in the world, well, I think.  You can find them at the tree top walk and you can find Grandma tree too.   You can recnise them because the the tingle trees have a big hole in it.  The Grandma tree has wrinkles on it that is why it is called a Grandma tree.  You can do the walk on the ground or the trees at the canopy walk.   The red tingle trees are about 75m high.  The tree top walk is at Denmark in Australia.
