Beach & Ore

Dampier is located approximately 20 minutes’ drive from the Karratha city-centre and was designed and constructed by the Hamersley Iron mining company to house workers involved with the port they created to ship out iron ore dug on the Hamersley Range.

Sitting on the edge of King Bay, the town has an attractive greenness, has a beach frontage with an ocean pool, boat ramps, a boating and sailing club. There are barbecue and picnic facilities near the beaches. Offshore are the islands of the Dampier Archipelago and the Burrup Peninsula is home to the largest collection of petroglyphs in the world.
