Karratha is a large modern town established in 1968, accommodating the workforce of the adjoining Port of Dampier in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The port is the world’s second largest bulk export port (Port Hedland 200 km to the east is the largest), exporting iron ore, salt, liquefied natural gas, and liquid ammonia. The town's name, which means 'good country' in the local Aboriginal language, comes from the cattle station from which land was reclaimed for its development. Karratha has a hot semi-arid climate all year round, making it a great spot to escape the colder weather further south.

Nearby are the 100 sq.km. Dampier salt ponds that export 5 million tonnes of salt annually. Inland 250 km are a dozen iron ore mines, including the original Mt Tom Price mine (1966). The hills around Karratha are carpeted in spinifex and its creeks are lined with white-barked coolabah trees, rock pools and picnic spots amongst twisted layers of rock. The magnificent Millstream-Chichester National Park is a 2 hour drive to the SE, with hidden pools and beautiful vegetation. For breathtaking views around Karratha walk the Yaburara Heritage Trail, a 3.5km walk that highlights the district’s natural history and cultural heritage of the Yaburara tribe. It covers rugged country with some steep climbs and descents and features Aboriginal sites including rock engravings and artifact scatters.

A short drive north of Karratha is the Burrup Peninsula, the largest island of the Dampier Archipelago, with the world's largest and most important collection of petroglyphs (rock art). The Archipelago embodies a hugely diverse marine ecosystem that includes: Green, loggerhead, flatback and hawksbill turtles nesting on the beaches; dugongs, dolphins and humpback whales in surrounding waters; rock-wallabies and northern quolls on some islands; migratory waders on the beaches and mangrove flats; coral reefs, sponge gardens, seagrass and more than 650 fish species.
