Located off the West Australian coast, approximately 1550 kilometres north of Perth in the Pilbara region of Australia’s North West, the magnificent Dampier Archipelago consists of 42 islands and islets. 25 of these islands are protected as part of the Dampier Archipelago Marine Park.
Named for English mariner William Dampier, who visited in 1699, the archipelago and Murujuga National Park (aka Burrup Peninsula) are the traditional lands of the Murujuga people.
The Dampier Archipelago was included in the National Heritage List in 2007. Murujuga National Park was established in 2013.
