Reviews of Dampier, WA

"Important northern port but quite isolated"

Dampier is 16.5 Kms from Karratha, 1550 kms north of Perth and is a large industrial port on the Dampier Archipelago. Exports from here include natural gas, iron ore, salt and petrochemicals. Most of the area outside the main centre is national park or owned by the local aboriginal people and as such is to be respected. Dampier has plenty of shops for all basic needs as well as being able to service the tourist with accommodation, dive shops charters etc. There are a number of schools both primary and secondary, state and private. Dampier has a medical centre and hospital with up to date facilities. Real estate is at a premium here with not a lot for sale although apartments can be purchased in the resort and there are often a few homes on the market but be prepared for the price tag. Apart from work, water based activities dominate here as Dampier beach has ocean pool barbeque facilities with picnic table, etc. There is a boat ramp and a sailing club right on the water front. Tourism is a growing industry here with many people finding work in the seasonal hospitality industry. This area has a tropical climate and is very hot in summer with cyclone not uncommon. Winter in Dampier is mild and many southerners head up here to escape the southern winter.
