A Travellerspoint blog


WA's ghost town

sunny 38 °C

This blog is a little belated as we visited Cossack on the way from Dampier to Eighty Mile Beach, but it is worth while mentioning.

Cossack was the home to the North West's first pearling industry in the late 1800's and early 1900's , but due to the over fishing of the Cossack pearling grounds the pearling fleet moved to Broome in the 1950's. The village has been restored to it's original splendour and is an interresting place to visit. Nobody lives in Cossack except for a caretaker.
