Cook Shire is the largest land area shire in Queensland. From the Bloomfield River in the south to just north of the Jardine River, it covers more than 100,000km2 and occupies 80 per cent of Cape York Peninsula.

Cook Shire is a vibrant area, from the main township of Cooktown to smaller outlying communities rich in indigenous history, agriculture, tourism and arts. About half of the Shire’s 5000-strong population live in Cooktown, on the banks of the Endeavour River, with the remainder spread between the smaller population centres of Marton, Laura, Lakeland, Coen, Ayton, Rossville, Portland Roads and offshore islands including Lizard Island.

Due to Cook Shire’s commitment to open and effective competition and value for money, we will regularly call for tenders, expressions of interest or request for quotes on projects of lesser value to ensure the best contractor is sourced, locally where possible.

Cook Shire Council is seeking proposals for the design and construction of the Gateway to the Cape Project which will include a new, purpose-built Traveller Information Centre, rest stop and sculpture park at Lakeland as further detailed in the Tender documents.

RSVP required for the mandatory briefing and site inspection will be held on Monday, 10th February 2020 at 10:30am
