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