SMOKEON is correct.

Cossack started as a pearl fishing settlement and was quite large in it's day. It had a school, courthouse and general stores that have been preserved. The old police station is used as a backpackers hotel.

The technique of producing pearls by seeding oysters killed the pearl diving industry and as the place was not suitable for any other purpose it was abandoned.

Over to you.
