The promotion of Collie at the recent Perth Royal Show, with a prime location in the Centenary Pavilion, was a huge success.
There was immense interest in Collie as a destination for camping and trails, with maps and information about the region being in great demand. The video footage of water skiing, the Motorplex and speedway, the skate park, the art gallery, Central Park, Stockton Lake, Honeymoon Pool and the many natural attractions and activities available in Collie engaged large numbers of visitors. The virtual reality kayak and mountain bike experiences were hugely popular, while the Coalfields Museum display of mining helmets through the years was a talking point.
It was rewarding to have so much interest shown in our region, and to hear positive feedback from people who have already visited and declared Collie as an ‘awesome’ place.
