Dampier - Fast Facts

Dampier (including the North West Shelf and Dampier Archipelago)
Port from the Hamersley iron mining operations at Mt Tom Price
For a single-purpose town, designed and constructed by the Hamersley Iron mining company , Dampier is a particularly pretty settlement of some 2000 people. Located 20 km from Karratha and 1555 km north of Perth, Dampier nestles on the edge of King Bay and has beaches fringed with palm trees. In spite of the area's chronically low rainfall and high temperatures, the town has a pleasant greenness (the result of lots of watering and nurturing) and the result is a place as nice as any 'company town' could ever become.
