Karratha Adventure Sports is a locally owned and operated adventure goods retail store since 1990.
Historically we have sold Fishing, Camping, Marine, Sporting and Diving goods, though more recently we have moved Sporting and Diving out of our 1200m2 location on Balmoral rd, Karratha into a smaller standalone building down the road. 

The Balmoral Rd premises is now going to be the best of Fishing, Camping and Marine goods, with a massive range in all departments. This role has been occupied by our much-loved Raymond who is set to retire in June this year after 10 years of adventure with us. This opens a rare opportunity to join the Karratha Adventure Sports management team. 

The Director will be stepping back from active management to take on a more office-based role. Our current Fishing Room Manager has been in training and will officially be adding to their existing role and becoming Store Manager. Meaning there is a sense of stability as you enter our team. This leaves an opening for the Assistant Store Manager who will be heavily involved in the camping section, while participating in the fishing and marine areas. 

The Company Director and new Store Manager will take an active role in training you in the POS system and will be there to support you without too much interference once training is complete.

The store will be undergoing a few renos this year making it new and sleek. This is the perfect time to jump on board and be a part of our history while serving people of Karratha and surrounds.
