What’s On

Karratha is a vibrant city with plenty to do – whether you’re into nature, interested in history, want to take in some culture or simply looking for a nice meal. Searipple runs regular shuttles into the city centre. At Searipple Village we pride ourselves on providing our guests with a wide range of options to keep them entertained during their stay. We’re always planning events to help make Searipple feel like home.

Community Events

Our community is made up of more than 22,700 residents, including ancestors of the Ngarluma, Yindjibarndi, Mardudhunera and Yaburara people. Across six towns; Dampier, Karratha, Roebourne, Wickham, Point Samson and the historic village of Cossack, our community enjoy an extensive calendar of sport and cultural events plus modern facilities and services, as we work toward our vision of being “Australia’s most liveable regional city.”
