On behalf of the community, the DCA manages the Dampier Transit Caravan Park and Hampton Oval. We also provide equipment hire, such as tables and chairs. The DCA generates an income from these sources and others, such as advertising at the Red Dog Tourist Info Bay and Transit Caravan Park, fundraising initiatives like the Dampier car number plates and Dampier fishing shirts and also via the sale of local books and merchandise. This enables us to support our community by providing community sponsorship, holding local grassroots events and also assists with the administration costs of running the Association.
Another of the DCA’s objectives is to inform our community of activities, achievements or issues that may affect them. We do this via emails, our FaceBook page and Blog page. The DCA also aims to facilitate discussion on issues and to communicate the collective view of members to government and other stakeholders on issues that may impact on Dampier, community members and surrounds. Some example of this include: liaising with the City of Karratha on Dampier’s Roaming with Red Dog Trail, the Lions Park upgrade and the Foreshore Development; and liaising with Rio Tinto on the Red Dog Tourist Information Bay upgrade.
