"Dampier and Karratha" Dampier by Myndo

Dampier Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 20 photos

Actually I will write about Karratha, but because that small town isn?t in the VT plan, I choose the next close town that is. (Dampier).

The surroundings of Karratha are full of Aboriginal historical sites and many engravings can be found.
Unfortunately the Aboriginals themselves are not present here anymore. A pitty, if you ask me.

But they left wonderful carvings that are worth to be looked after.

Just see in my tips how to find them.

Also if you go to the Millstream Chichester National Park and you don?t want to drive the dead end-road in and out again, there?s an interesting alternative (see my "off the beaten track" tip).

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:interesting trails and aboriginal carvings
  • Cons:a little too much industry in this area
  • In a nutshell:On the search for Aboriginal engravings, best place
