Collie, WA

The town of Collie, 200 kilometres south of Perth, lies in a scenic valley formed by the Darling Ranges.


Collie has warm to hot summers, cool clear autumn days, crisp and occasionally misty winter days. Collie comes alive with colour in the springtime (September – November) as a diverse range of wildflowers start to bloom.

Collie is proud of its long mining heritage. Visitors can gain an understanding of underground miners’ lifestyle through a visit to the Replica Underground Coal Mine, located next to the Collie Visitor Centre.

Due to its forest location, Collie offers picturesque walks and drives through large stands of jarrah, marri, sheoak, and blackbutt forests. Collie’s varied waterways offer a wide range of activities, from a quiet canoe paddle at Minninup Pool, on the upper reaches of the Collie River, to whitewater rafting on the challenging rapids below the wall of Wellington Dam. Bush camping, swimming, fishing, water-skiing, and marroning (in season) are some of the recreational pursuits available for visitors to the Collie River Valley.

Natural attractions include Wellington Dam and Harris Dam. The Bibbulmun Track (a world class 1000km walk trail) passes through the Collie townsite and winds around the very picturesque Harris Dam.

Accommodation in Collie ranges from hotels and motels to farm stay and backpacker options.
