Collie is a town with a very bright future, and one that offers real opportunity to make a difference. While the area has historically been associated with coal mining and coal-fired power stations, Collie is undergoing a significant period of change. Aided by the State government led ‘Just Transition’ program, our community is working to diversify its economic base and set up for long term prosperity.
