"Friendly town with plenty to do."

Collie is located 200km south of Perth and but is 60 kms inland from the coast. Collie is well known for the mining industry here and since 1994 all mining is open cut method. Mining, manufacturing and agriculture are the main industries here as well as a growing tourist trade. Collie has warm to hot summers with cold crisp winters producing many misty mornings. There is also quite a lot of cold rain here during winter. Collie boasts a few large shopping centres with supermarkets, specialty stores including camping and sports stores, gift and clothing including boutique style stores. There are banks with ATM facilities, newsagents and chemists etc. There are also many weekend markets selling arts and crafts as well as fresh locally grown produce. There are some really good restaurants as well as pubs serving counter meals and of course there are always fast food outlets. Collie has several pre schools and primary schools and a high school and TAFE College. There are plenty of sporting groups and associations to join and there is a swimming pool, playing fields and a recreation centre as well as many natural activities such as bush walking, canoeing, white water rafting, fishing and waterskiing. Real estate in the area is quite reasonable as are rental properties.
