Captain Cook

The Captain Cook Memorial globe at Regatta Point. This is only half of the memorial - the other part wasn't in operation on Saturday because of the wind. It's a water jet in the lake, which shoots up nearly 150 metres into the air. When it's windy, the water can blow across onto Commonwealth Avenue Bridge, and can be a traffic hazard, so you'll have to wait for another day for a photo of that.

The globe shows the routes of Captain James Cook's three voyages - you can see the red, yellow and blue lines better on the image below.
