A message from Peter Long

Welcome to the City of Karratha, home to the towns of Dampier, Karratha, Roebourne, Cossack, Wickham and Point Samson. Offering a range of lifestyle and business opportunities our City has cemented itself as the economic and lifestyle hub of the North West and has become a destination of choice for those wanting to live, work and play.

Over the next year the City of Karratha will continue to deliver key infrastructure projects and facilities to support the growing needs of our community. Projects like the Karratha Leisureplex, Karratha Airport Terminal Upgrade, Karratha City Centre works, Dampier Community Hub and the upcoming Wickham Community Hub are changing the face of the city and raising our levels of amenity.

The new Red Earth Arts Precinct is set to fill in the missing piece for our City – a dedicated arts centre, featuring a 450 seat theatre, outdoor amphitheatre, rooftop cinema and event space, as well as housing a state of the art community library and the local history collection.

Throughout 2017/2018, we will continue to provide our community with fantastic services, from youth programs to litter picking, rangers, parks and gardens are much more. We will continue to provide you with a diverse range of arts and culture programs, and we will continue to deliver facilities and support developments that meet the needs of our community.
