Registration of interest to activate and develop Cossack townsite

On behalf of the State Government, the Department is seeking Registrations of Interest for a unique opportunity to acquire and activate the historic Cossack townsite.

Located on the Pilbara coast at the mouth of the Harding River, by the iconic Jarman Island, Cossack is a State Registered Heritage Place that comprises a collection of remaining buildings and archaeological sites rich in cultural history.

Established as the first port of the North West of Australia, the townsite played a central role in the State’s first pearling industry and today offers a central base for adventurers to explore the stunning Pilbara landscape, Aboriginal history and rock art and various recreational activities.

Favourable consideration will be given to proposals that entertain low-impact tourism development and ancillary uses such as high quality eco-tourism accommodation, low-cost camping, cafes or galleries.

Any submissions will need to respond to and consider physical site constraints, heritage protection and conservation, Native Title considerations, future planning, development and land management. 

Registrations of interest close at 2pm on Friday 20 November 2020

For further information and to register your interest, contact the listing agent.
