Dampier Salt Mines Information

Located on Lake Macleod, the Dampier Salt Mines are an impressive sight from the road. Whilst not usually open to the general public tours can be organised through the Carnarvon Visitors Centre, if there are a sufficient number of people interested in viewing the operations.

Learn about the salt mining process and how the 2,070 square kilometre salt lake was formed. Witness the salt being harvested and transported to Cape Cuvier for shipping.

The mines are a one hour drive north of Carnarvon and 11 hours drive north of Perth. Carnarvon offers a plethora of activities to keep the whole family entertained and forms an excellent base to explore the region. If you enjoy seeing natural attractions, include a trip to the Bibbawarra Bore and the Blowholes which are both north of Carnarvon.
