A historic coal mining town, Collie has transformed into a thriving township over the last decade. Whether you are after a bit of adventure or a relaxing getaway with the family, Collie has something for everyone.

Surrounded by popular attractions and picnic areas such as Wellington Dam National Park, the peaceful Honeymoon Pool, Minninup Pool, Stockton Lake, Black Diamond, The Quarry and the Collie River Valley, these locations are great for a family weekend adventure. If you are a thrill seeker, check out the many bush walking, mountain biking and four-wheel driving tracks, as well as the Bibbulmun Track, Munda Biddi Trail and Collie Motorplex. Alternatively, if you are interested in the history of Collie, visit the Steam Locomotive Museum, Replica Coal Mine, Coalfields Museum, All Saints Anglican Church, Collie Courthouse and Collie Post Office.

While Collie remains a mining and employment hub, it is currently going through a major transition to explore new industry opportunities, including tourism. Large businesses prominent in the area include South 32 Worsley Alumina, Premier Coal and Muja Power Station. To support job seekers and employers within the region, the Collie TAFE campus also specialises in Heavy Vehicle Driving Operations training, providing hands-on experience working in heavy haulage.
