Fingal Head was first sighted by James Cook about 17:15 EST 15–16 May 1770 (log date). The area and small town is often just called Fingal. It is located on the Far North Coast of New South Wales in Tweed Shire, about 5 km south of the New South Wales and Queensland border, and south of the Gold Coast.

The headland itself was made form the magma flow from the extinct volcano, Mount Warning. There are walking tracks all over this area. About 500 metres offshore from the headland is Cook Island, a rocky uninhabited island first charted by James Cook in 1770. The stretch of water to the island is called the "Giants Causeway". Cook Island was made a marine reserve in 1998.
Fishing is prohibited in the waters nearby.

Plenty of traffic here on a Saturday night it seems, and the inevitable happened - I was spotted running about with my fluro light rig. Thus my suspicions were confirmed, and I got some funny looks.

As I was leaving, a fisherman said "G'day" to me about four times... quite odd, really.
