The south-west towns of Collie and Dwellingup have now been transformed into world-class trail towns.

Existing trails in the area have been expanded into networks of new trails and facilities that will showcase the area’s natural landscapes and cultural heritage, and make a significant economic contribution to the region. Now, over 150 kilometres of new single-track mountain bike trails, and new walking and canoeing opportunities are waiting to be explored. 

Collie Adventure Trails

Located 213 kilometres from Perth’s CBD and 60 kilometres from Bunbury, Collie has long been popular for adventure camping, water skiing and outdoor activities. Collie’s topography and landscape provide mountain bike riders and walkers with an array of areas to enjoy and challenges to tackle. The spectacular Collie River, which stretches from the town through Westralia Conservation Park and Wellington National Park, along with imposing granite outcrops, lush vegetation, and steep and varied natural features, together create an ideal foundation on which to experience the new world-class trail network.
