Discover Katanning

1. The Premier Mill Hotel

Your home base in the heart of Katanning.

2. Library and Arts Centre

The Katanning Public Art Gallery is one of the largest galleries within the Great Southern Region and showcases some wonderful exhibitions, from local art collections to TAFE art student's displays to visiting international exhibitions. Of special interest is the annual Together Exhibition, hosted in September, which showcases local artists.

3. Historical Museum

Housed in the original Katanning government school, the historical museum contains interesting artefacts and quaint memorabilia along with some fascinating records from Katanning's early history.

4. Kobeelya House

Built in 1902 as the home for the family of Frederick Piesse, this extravagant house overlooks the town of Katanning. The grounds at that time had stables, tennis courts, a croquet ground and a coach house. For the sixty years following Piesse's death, Kobeelya was used as a girls' boarding school (the only boarding school where girls could stable their own horses!). With the closing of the school in 1986, the Katanning Baptist Church purchased the property who now use it as a busy conference centre and retreat.

5. Winery Ruins

In 1904, a winery was built to process grapes harvested from the Piesse family vineyards. The wines won prizes at the Perth Agricultural Show, and received gold medals in London and Paris. Many of the wine making tools and casks were eventually sold to the monks from the New Norcia Mission.
