Do you live in Winnipeg or something I know how you feel. I live about 250 miles away from Ontario

It's probably somebody's shack. It was an Australian tradition to find some bit of remote coast somewhere and build a slapdash shack on it to get away from it all. As cities and towns expanded, the shacks got swallowed up by "civilisation and progress" and are now multi-million dollar mansions. Sometimes governments just decide they've got to go.

If the structure at those co-ordinates is one of the iconic Aussie beach shacks, it should be safe for quite some time. Nothing out there. I noticed another one just southwest of it.

I found this little tidbit from a wiki entry about an almost dead little town nearby on the Nullarbor Plain: When the railway was sold, 8 transportable houses were taken away and made into holiday houses on the coast.
