Captain Cook Memorial & Lighthouse Upgrade


Multi Span Australia Group


April 2024


The Captain Cook Memorial and Lighthouse at Point Danger on the NSW/QLD border has undergone significant upgrades, including the addition of a new Marine Rescue NSW operations centre and the development of a café and gallery. Construction began for the electrical scope of works in November 2022. The upgrade aims to improve the facility with wheelchair-friendly public toilets, enhanced pedestrian access, and additional parking. The viewing deck’s concrete work has been highlighted, along with upcoming installations such as doors, windows, internal and external fittings, and utilities. This site, important for its historical and cultural significance, will also feature storyboards and artworks by Bundjalung/Yugambeh artist Christine Slabb that reflect both the Indigenous and European histories of the area. The gallery and café will offer seating both indoors and on the deck, operating daily to support Marine Rescue initiatives through product sales.
