Cossack Heritage Walk

Easy track
Starting from the front of Galbraith Store, Cossack, this walk takes you on a stroll in Cossack Historic Town. You can enjoy the beautiful landscape and observe the fine examples of early Australian buildings that have been restored. The area is especially appealing for historians and archeologists. There are certain facilities and a cafe in the town. It is also possible to go paddling and fishing as well. Be aware of the unprotected wells and private land and try not to follow unmarked paths. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
