Cairn has a plaque with an extract of Captain Cook`s journal explaining the naming of the headlands.

This area was first documented by Captain Cook in 1770, when he found the coastline from off-shore was distinguished by three prominent headlands. He imaginatively named them First Point, Second Point (Mourawaring Point at the Southern end of MacMasters Beach), and Third Point (Bombi Point south of Little Beach).
