Cattai is an historic suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It is located 44 kilometres north-west of the Sydney central business district and 30 kilometres north-west of Parramatta. It is in the local government areas of The Hills Shire and City of Hawkesbury. Cattai’s state electoral district is Hawkesbury, and its federal electoral divisions are Berowra and Macquarie.
Cattai is bounded in the north-west by the Hawkesbury River and is traversed by Cattai Creek. It encompasses the heritage-listed Cattai Estate, located within Cattai National Park at the junction of the Creek and the River. The Georgian house was built between 1804 and 1821 by former Magistrate Thomas Arndell, with further additions being made in the 1860s. Cattai is also home to a historic rural public primary school that was founded in 1886. The suburb was originally home to the Darug Indigenous Australians before being settled in the early nineteenth century.
The locality of Cattai was the home of the Darug people who occupied a large expanse of Greater Western Sydney. The Darug people are thought to have occupied the locality of Cattai for more than 20,000 years.
The name Cattai was originally thought to have derived from an Aboriginal word with an unknown meaning. However, it was more likely named by the First Fleet Assistant Surgeon and Magistrate Thomas Arndell who built a homestead called ‘Caddie’. The homestead is now called Cattai Estate and resides in Cattai National Park. The suburb of Cattai has henceforth been considered a misnomer of ‘Caddie’.
Europeans settlers moved into the area in 1794 to sustain the food shortages of Sydney. Following protests by the Darug people over the loss of their traditional hunting and fishing lands, soldiers were sent to the area in 1795.
Cattai Post Office opened on 26 November 1906 and closed in 1994.
Cattai Public School was established in 1886. Arndell Anglican College was independent secondary college that was established in Cattai in 1990, until it moved to its current site of Oakville in 1994
Cattai has a number of heritage-listed sites, the most notable being Cattai Estate on Wisemans Ferry Road.
