Oakajee is a locality in the Mid West region of Western Australia, about 25 kilometres (16 mi) north of the city of Geraldton.[1]

Oakagee was a location on the Northampton railway line in the era between 1879 and 1957.[2]

The area is associated with the Oakajee Port, a project with a long history of failed attempts to secure funding for construction, the most recent of which occurred in May 2014.[3] [4]
