The Dampier Archipelago – 42 islands, islets and rocks, all within a 45-kilometer radius of Dampier – has exceptional natural beauty, high conservation values and outstanding heritage values. Many of the Archipelago’s islands are reserves managed by the Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC).
This protection is important as some islands maintain unique habitats for plants and animals, undamaged by feral animals and weeds.
Some islands are classed as Special Conservation Zones where no public access is allowed as they provide nesting sites for threatened seabird populations and marine turtles.
The Dampier Archipelago’s scenic landscape of spinifex-covered islands, dramatic piles of jumbled red rock and white sandy beaches contrast against aqua waters and bright blue skies. It provides a visual feast for all who visit and a wealth of recreational opportunities.
While the Dampier Archipelago is best known for fishing and boating, it has much more to offer.
The Dampier Archipelago is the richest area of marine biodiversity known in Western Australia, and is comparable with the Great Barrier Reef. Coral reefs, sponge gardens, sea grass and more than 650 species of fish make snorkeling and diving popular.
Whale watching is popular between June and September when humpback whales are commonly seen migrating between their summer feeding grounds in the Antarctic and their winter breeding grounds in the tropics.
Bottlenose and Indo-pacific humpback dolphins are also regularly seen.
Flatback, green, hawksbill and loggerhead turtles are often seen in the Dampier Archipelago and during the summer visitors have the opportunity to watch female flatback, green and hawksbill turtles nesting on several beaches.
The Archipelago supports the largest hawksbill turtle rookery in the Indo-Pacific region, one of the largest in the world.
Bird watchers have the opportunity to see more than 100 bird species, including several migratory waders that use the beaches and mudflats to feed and rest during the long flight to Australia from their breeding grounds in Northern Russia.
Ospreys and sea eagles are frequently seen soaring over the Archipelago and the large osprey nests constructed of sticks are prominent and common features on the island headlands and rock stacks.
Visitors may also see the elusive Rothschild’s rock wallaby among the rock piles on the larger islands or, if very lucky, the rare Pilbara olive python, one of 41 species of terrestrial reptiles found on the islands.
The islands, like the Burrup Peninsula, offer the unique opportunity to see excellent examples of Aboriginal heritage, in particular rock engravings.
