Mallacoota and Cann River 2020 Cook commemorations for April, HAVE been cancelled!

We have just heard from Mallacoota that because of continuing fires, the closed National Park and the recovery effort, that Mallacoota and Cann River have decided to cancel the Festival and the remaining events and take down the Festival website.
This district is still undergoing extreme problems and continuing fire events.
Parks Victoria have also closed Point Hicks and Tamboon Inlet plus the Croajingolong National Park due to fire risks in the area and road access problems.
It is not known when this will cease, at this stage.
Thus the Captain Cook Society (Aust) and New Zealand joint meeting planned for Mallacoota is Cancelled!

The meeting of the Captain Cook Society and the CCS(A) Inc. AGM is postponed to a date and time still to be determined.

 . Due to the Covid19 problems and restrictions this situation will continue to be monitored and any changes notified.

Apologies to all affected by this news, however our thoughts and prayers are still with the people within these affected areas, and their ongoing struggles and challenges!

Croajingolong closure
Croajingolong National Park is currently closed due to fire activity in the surrounding area in East Gippsland. For the latest information on fires, visit

This includes POINT HICKS.

It is not clear how long this will last

BUT at present our planned Point Hicks event is CANCELLED by Parks Victoria.
