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.

 

Nestled in the Collie River Valley, with a beautiful river defining its name and character, Collie is much more than many people envisage, and the town's residents enjoy an enviable lifestyle.

Located between two major highways heading South from the metropolitan area, just 200km from Perth and 50km from the coast, Collie is often described as the "South West's best kept secret".

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

The town centre, shopping, hotels and restaurants are located within walking distance of of two golf courses, tennis courts, bowling rinks, an Olympic size swimming pool, town library, beautiful parks, cricket and football grounds.

The Collie-Donnybrook race has been held annually for almost a century

Collie 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.
