Karratha was officially named in 1962 after the original indigenous word meaning “place where water meets land”. It’s now an international port city with most exports being oil, gas and mineral resources. As one of Australia’s largest coastal ports, Karratha provides transport for goods between Asia and Europe or America.

The property market in Karratha tends to fluctuate with the local economy. The city was founded as a hub for mining back in 1897, but it became prosperous due to its strategically-located port. There’s still lots of potential for development and the economy remains strong.
