Cataby WA


Postcode: 6507

Cataby is a tiny townsite located some 170 km north of Perth, Western Australia on the Brand Highway. The area was apparently once called West Dandaragan, with the town of Dandaragan located 17km to the east.

Cataby is perhaps best known by travellers as a rest-stop on the journey to such locations as Geraldton, or the Pinnacles Desert within the Nambung National Park near Cervantes.

Tiwest Joint Venture have a titanium mine site at Cooljarloo, near Cataby. Concentrate is transported by road train to the processing facility at Chandala, near Muchea.
