In the past, most travellers to Karratha ran their errands – banking, restocking, repairing stuff etc – and then got out of town before their wallet ignited. That did the town a small disservice. It's the primary base for mining and industry in the region, and while it won't win any awards for prettiest town, it certainly has a few things worth sticking around to investigate – from tours to ancient rock art to cafes that wouldn't look out of place in the coolest parts of Perth.
