Fun Facts & Things to Do
The Coalfields Museum and Historical Research Centre across the road from the Visitors Centre provides a unique glimpse into Collie’s early days. The museum is housed in the historic buildings of the 1900 and 1930 Road Board offices.
Taking pride of place is a restored barrel organ made in Italy. The organ is a forerunner of a jukebox and was used to entertain the old timers at Fontana’s Wine Saloon next to the Federal Hotel in Throssell Street. There are loads of other great items on show inside too along with historical photos and military memorabilia.

Collie is quite the town for museums actually! You can experience some great railway history at the Collie Rail Heritage Precinct at Forrest St.
On show are many items of vintage rail rolling stock, carriages, wagons and a shunting locomotive. There are buildings such as the Collie Railway Goods Shed (heritage listed, as well as the Bill Weir Rolling Stock Shed and Collie Railway Station.
Opening hours: Monday, Wednesday and Friday 9am to 1 pm.
In the centre of town you can follow the tree-lined path of WA peppermints along the Collie River to the dedication rose garden and memorial built to honour those fallen.
The entrance gates to Soldiers Park were erected as a memorial to WWI and the archway was built to celebrate the State’s Centenary in 1929. A Sacred Stone in the park honours those members of the Aboriginal community killed in war.
The Park is an idyllic spot with shady Camphor Laurel trees, gas BBQ, playground equipment, gazebo and lawns.
