Dampier

Description

Dampier is a major industrial port in the northwest of Western Australia. The Dampier Port is part of the Dampier Archipelago. The port services petrochemical, salt, iron ore and natural gas export industries. Rio Tinto exports large volumes of iron ore through the port, and in September 2010 announced plans to expand capacity. At the 2011 census, Dampier had a population of 1,341.

While staying in the area we drove to Dampier to board a cruise to view and learn about the resource operations in the Dampier Archipelago. Before boarding we stopped at the Dampier Lookout on Hill Road to get an idea of the size of the Harbour - the view was just like a postcard with still blue waters and lots of islands. 

Our Captain was Brad who has plenty of information on the local area and is passionate about this part of the coast of WA. He is not able to go closer than 500 metres to the gas plant for safety reasons but we were able to view a gas tanker leaving the harbour.

Rio Tinto Iron Ore ships being loaded - this is an important process as they have to be loaded evenly to remain stable on the water. Brad showed us Sam's island which was occupied by Sam for 40 years. 

We anchored in a bay for morning tea - scones jam and cream - some of the other passengers went swimming.  We say a large Manta ray swimming near the surface of the water and a grey indo pacific dolphin. 

There is a small caravan park in town (overlooking the harbour) which is a transit park allowing a maximum three night stay - basic but adequate.
