Karratha by Air

Story: Karratha by Air
Airdate: 1st September 19
Presenter: Chrissy Morrissy

Chrissy shows us Karratha by Air.

  • Karratha is one of the most isolated towns in WA, better known for its mining and red dirt. Take a helicopter tour of the area to get a better understanding of what the area has to offer.
  • Fly over Karratha City, which thanks to Royalties for Regions has become a thriving liveable city in our North.
  • You will fly over the busiest port in WA, which services the North West’s mining industry.
  • The natural gas operations look more like a space station from the air.
  • Around the corner from all of that is Karratha’s surf break, lying off one of the 42 islands that make up the Dampier Archipelago.
  • From the air you can see giant Manta Rays and Turtles, if you are lucky you may also see migrating whales.
  • If travelling by air isn’t your thing, take a short drive out to Hearson’s Cove, a beautiful beach covered in millions of tiny rocks and shells. A lovely sheltered cove, Hearson Cove is a popular swimming and picnic area all year round.
