Experience Katanning 

An easy three-hour drive south-east of Perth, Katanning is the perfect base to explore Western Australia’s Great Southern. This large and diverse region is a top tourist destination, featuring many natural scenic attractions, wildlife, heritage, wildflowers and genuine country hospitality.

KAAT-NYINY is a local Noongar word meaning the head sits here. It comes from the Dreamtime story of Mulka, a giant man whose body parts are embedded in country throughout the Great Southern Region.

Katanning is a scenic rural town with many stories to tell; stories of an ancient and modern history, strong ties to agriculture and the beauty of our landscape, the positive influence of migration and the festivals and events that celebrate this unique place we call home.

The most popular time to visit Katanning and its surrounding region is during the wildflower season from late winter through to spring when the landscape is at its most spectacular.

Katanning proudly is the most multicultural community in Western Australia, with over 40 nationalities. The community harmoniously embraces a variety of different cultural and religious backgrounds and are proud to showcase this to visitors. It is truly the multicultural gem of the Great Southern.

Katanning is part of the magnificent Great Southern Treasures.
