About Us

From small beginnings to one of the premier bowls clubs in North Queensland

Cooktown Bowls Club was first established in the late 1970's with our first grass green and little demountable clubhouse. Under the guidance of dedicated volunteer management committees, we have grown over the years to now become one of the best venues in Cooktown and premier bowling clubs in North Queensland.

With one of the best views in town, our Club is located along the banks of the Endeavour River which is known for its historical ties with Captain Cook. Our world-class shade cover enables year-round day and night bowling.

Our fully air-conditioned club boasts a modern restaurant, bar area and members lounge, Keno facilities, gaming room and live sports on our big screen tvs. We can cater for small meetings and functions up to parties and corporate functions for over 100 people. Our courtesy bus is available for pick up and drop off within town limits on most nights.

We are known for our generosity giving out around $30,000 annually in donations and sponsorships to other local not-for-profit organisations, community groups, and schools.
