The village of Cathcart was originally named Taylors Flat when James Taylor moved his stock intot he area and squatted on the land. In 1857 the area was surveyed and renamed Cathcart after General Cathcart of Crimean War fame.
The village retains its links with its pioneer past with memorabilia from the era on permanent display at Cathcart Collectables and a pioneer remembrance wall outside the Old Hall. A well sign posted town walk also takes the visitors back in time.
History is also captured in the General Store which still has an amazing array of old advertising posters up onthe walls. This same store was operated by members of the one family for over 100 years, its present owners have been operating since 1990.
The village of Cathcart is one of those rare finds, a small rural village steeped in history happily adjusting to changing circumstances.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
