Kobeelya Site Map

 

Overview

Amidst the undulating farming land of the Great Southern region of Western Australia, overlooking the town of Katanning is Kobeelya.  Occupying six hectares of parkland Kobeelya offers a relaxed and tranquil atmosphere away from the pressures of urban living.

Situated 275 kilometres S.E. of Perth this picturesque setting is within easy walking distance of the shopping facilities in the centre of town. Kobeelya has buildings ideally suited for conventions, conferences, retreats and family camps.

Originally built in 1902 as the home for the family of the founding father of Katanning, Mr F.H. Piesse, the house itself was considered extravagant in its time with all internal fittings and furniture being purchased overseas.

For the sixty years following Mr Piesse's death, Kobeelya was used as a girls' boarding school, originally by the Church of England and later by the Uniting Church. With the closing of the school in 1986, the Katanning Baptist Church purchased the property.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today's Verse

[Jesus said,] "I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. ... This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples."
