Home Base

Home base is the small region called the “Discovery Coast” in south east Queensland. It is also known as the “Birthplace of Queensland”, so called by Sir Raphael Cilento who the government gave the task to design and erect a monument at the town of 1770, on Round Hill Head to celebrate 200 years from when Lt James Cook made the first landing on what is now Queensland, at this place.
