Suburb Overview

Katanning is a town located 277 km south-east of Perth, Western Australia on the Great Southern Highway. At the 2006 census, Katanning had a population of 3,808.

The meaning of Katanning is unknown but it is thought to be a local aboriginal word that is either 'Kart-annin' that literally means "meeting place of the heads of tribes", or 'Kartanup' that means "clear pool of sweet water". Others suggest that the place is named after a local aboriginal woman.

The first Europeans to explore the Katanning area were Governor James Stirling and Surveyor General John Septimus Roe who travelled through the area in 1835 en route from Perth to Albany.

In about 1870, sandalwood cutters moved into the area but they did not settle. It was not until the arrival of the Great Southern Railway from Perth to Albany in 1889 that the township came into existence.

The townsite was initially developed by the same company that built the railway, the Western Australian Land Company. The state government purchased the railway and the townsite in 1896 and later formally gazetted the town in 1898.

Katanning remains an important centre on the Great Southern Railway to Albany.

A roller flour mill, later known as the Premier Flour Mill, was constructed close to the centre of the town in 1891 by brothers, Frederick Henry Piesse and Charles Austin Piesse; this in turn encouraged the local farmers to grow wheat which was at the heart of the town's early economic success. The mill is now a museum.

An earthquake was centred just south of Katanning at 8:00 am 10 October 2007. The earthquake measured 4.8 on the Richter scale, and is rated as the largest earthquake in the region for four decades.

A statue of Frederick Henry Piesse was erected in 1916 and stands beside the railway line in Austral Terrace. The Piesse family constructed a regal mansion which was named "Kobeelya" and after being used for many years as a girls' boarding school, is now a conference centre managed by the local Baptist church.

Katanning features a unique playground of over-sized structures named the "All Ages Playground". The town has many other attractions, including a state of the art recreation, leisure and function centre.

Katanning has a relatively large Muslim population, of about 350 people, and consequently has a mosque. The vast majority of local Muslims originated in the Cocos Islands, and travelled to Katanning to work in the local abattoir, which was established in the late 1970s.
