Cycling along Collie River Wellington National Park

The drive into Collie along the top of the Darling Scarp offers spectacular views of the surrounding jarrah forest, hills and farmland. In addition to its natural beauty, this historic town, nestled on the banks of the Collie River, has a rich coal mining history that can be explored through a tour of the replica underground coal mine or a visit to the Coalfields Museum. Collie’s ‘Australiana’ style pubs reflect the optimism and prosperity of the early mining days and the distinctive All Saints Anglican Church, built in 1915, is a fine example of Italian style architecture.



There are plenty of options for bushwalkers and mountain bike enthusiasts as the Bibbulmun Track and Munda Biddi Trail pass close to Collie. Further walk trails and mountain bike rides can be found throughout the Collie River Valley which is also a great spot for rafting, swimming or just relaxing. For canoeing or picnicking try the picturesque Minninup Pool, Potters Gorge or Honeymoon Pool and water skiers can enjoy Stockton Lake. It is a fantastic region to spot wildflowers.
