Cossack – Living History

Situated at the heart of the Pilbara coastal region, Cossack is a town alive with history and culture.  Just 50km from the modern city of Karratha, Cossack is a peaceful and tranquil spot.  Stay in the comfortable B&B accommodation or one of the camping sites and explore the natural and man-made beauty of the local area. It is also a great base from which to explore the region’s highlights such as Roebourne, Point Samson, Millstream Chichester National Park and the Burrup Peninsula’s Murujuga National Park.

The town site features the popular café by the sea and souvenir shop, gallery and a museum set amongst the town’s restored historical buildings.  There are excellent walks, safe swimming and snorkelling in and around the stunning Settlers Beach.  The fishing is hard to beat.  Particularly if you get out on the water. Cossack Boat Hire offers a range of boats for hire, by the hour or day.

Cossack makes the perfect event venue, whether its a private function such as a wedding or a nationally acclaimed event such as the Cossack Art Awards.

Be sure to check out our events calendar so you do no miss out on the regular markets, free live music and exclusive ticketed events.

Described by some as a ghost town – Cossack is alive with history.
