Taking its name from the local Indigenous word meaning ‘good country’, Karratha is the youngest and fastest growing town in the Pilbara. Located 1,535 kilometres north of Perth on the North West Coastal Highway, it is situated right in the heart of the Central Pilbara Coast.

Karratha was established in 1960s due to the tremendous growth of the iron ore industry. Today, it is a busy, modern and well-serviced town and a great base for exploring Millstream Chichester National Park, Karijini National Park and the 42 islands of the Dampier Archipelago.

Walk the Jaburara Heritage Trail and discover Indigenous rock engravings and artefacts. Head for Hearson’s Cove for a swim and catch the ‘Stairway to the Moon’ from May to October. Or take a picnic to Miaree Pool and go for a refreshing dip.
