Work is currently underway to turn the south-west towns of Collie and Dwellingup into world-class trail towns.

These initiatives will expand existing trail networks by creating new trails and facilities that will showcase the area’s natural landscapes and cultural heritage, and make a significant economic contribution to the region.The two trail projects will be delivered in multiple stages over three to four years, and together will feature over 150 kilometres of new single-track mountain bike trails, and new walking and canoeing opportunities when complete.

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 build a new world-class trail network.
