About Collie 

Collie isn't just a great place to play golf.
It is a great place to live, work and invest, and a great place to visit.

Located 200km south of Perth, and 50km from the coast, Collie's 10,000 or so residents enjoy an enviable lifestyle. 

A modern shopping centre is located within walking distance of of two golf courses, tennis courts, bowling rinks, an Olympic size swimming pool, town library, beautiful park, cricket and football grounds.

A favourite swimming hole and picnic spot for locals, Minninup Pool on the Collie River borders the 16th hole of the Collie Golf Club - and is only about two kilometres from the town centre. 

Nestled in the Collie River Valley, with a beautiful river defining its name and character, Collie is much more than many people envisage. Located between two major highways heading South from the metropolitan area, it is often described as the "South West's best kept secret".

Collie is just 20 minutes off South West Highway (turn off at Roelands) and 90 minutes off Albany Highway (turn off at Arthur River).

The town is big enough to boast just about every facility you could require, while being small enough to get to know people.

 

The Collie-Donnybrook cycle race has been held annually since 1925, and attracts riders from throughout Western Australia.

Facilities include a trotting track, race course and a multitude of sporting fields. It also has five hotels, four motels and various eateries catering for a variety of tastes.

The town also boasts a senior high school and five primary schools.

Motor racing fans are well catered for, with a first class motor racing circuit, the Collie Motorplex, and a speedway located just minutes from the town centre.

 Soldiers Park, in the centre of Collie, is bordered by the river and home to geese, ducks and coots - as well as free gas barbecues, plenty of seating, and shady picnic spots.

A little further from town is the stunning Wellington Dam and the spectacular return route through Honeymoon Pool.

There are many camping spots below the dam and these are extremely popular at Easter. Stockton Lake and Glen Mervyn Dam are also popular with campers and skiers.

Nearby Ferguson Valley, with its wineries and breweries, is now rivaling Margaret River, due to its range and closer proximity to the metropolitan area.

Significant employers in the region are coal miners Griffin and Premier, Western Power and Worsley Alumina.

But increasingly, tourism is also making its contribution to the local economy. Apart from its discovery as a prime wine producing region, our area is also developing a strong reputation for the production of an outstanding range of arts, crafts and culinary products.

Collie has it all.
