Cataby (Part 1)


Cataby is a small town about 1.5 hours north of Perth along Brand Highway.  Blink and you have missed a true Aussie Gem.

25 Hour Diner

This town hosts two roadhouses with each having their unique features.  The first was a Diner that was open for 25 hours!  I know, never knew that there were 25 hours in the day.  It could be that times comes to an almost standstill that it probably feels like 25 hours.

The first is a unique stop which allows visitors to sit by an Aviary of native birds.  There are shaded picnic benches where you can enjoy coffee/tea and snacks which can be purchased from the restaurant.

With iconic sculptures of kangaroos, begs one to pose for a photo.

My motto – cease the moment while you can!

A quick pose!

The food was average.  I am not a big fan on oily fries, however they were well received by the kids.  The coffee was made through a button machine, which I would normally not invest in, however given with our latest adventures – caffeine was high on the list of priorities.

While the coffee was not outstanding, the venue was very quaint and I thought that I could quite easily stop here again in the not so distant future.  However, time was pressing and we were hoping to reach Cervantes before midday….so onward and forward we went.
