Dampier Archipelago and Burrup Peninsula

The Dampier Archipelago is a cluster of 42 islands that lie off the north-west coast of the town of Dampier. Some of the islands are so close to the mainland shore that the paddling distance is only a few kilometres. While the islands are arid with little vegetation, it is possible to enjoy a multi-day trip in the area by camping on the Burrup Peninsula to the north of Dampier. Some of the islands to visit include Dolphin, Tozer, Gidley and Malus islands. The waters are clear and the marine life is rich, including dolphins, humpback whales and manta rays. Fishing here is also good, where permitted, but make sure to bring your own water.
