Point Samson Tourism & Travel
Point Samson Australia
Point Samson, near Cossack just north of Karratha, is a small fishing town that was once the principal port for the Roeburne district. Traffic declined in Point Samson when most of the larger mining companies set up modern shipping facilities at Dampier further south. However, a large commercial fishing fleet still operates out of the town.
The wharf at Cape Lambert 2km from Point Samson is one of the highest and longest open ocean wharves in Australia, extending for more than 2.5km out to sea.
Point Samson is famous for its long, white sandy beach that is protected by a large coral reef making it ideal for beach activities such as swimming, diving and snorkeling.
Honeymoon Cove is a beautiful place to slow down and have a picnic or go for a cool swim. Samson Reef can be explored at low tide.
