Practically a suburb of Karratha, Dampier is the region's main port and is home to heavy industry. It's spread around King Bay 20km northwest of Karratha. Its most famous resident is Red Dog (who has had books written about him, and movies made), a much-loved dog that roved the town and surrounds in the 1970s. A statue of him is at the entry to town.
