Collie town centre can be accessed via a 2.7km spur trail. It is large enough to offer all the services expected of a regional centre, surrounded by forests, rivers and lakes.
Heading south from Collie the next town, Balingup, is about a week’s walk away. The Bibbulmun Track Wellington Spur Trail south of Collie provides access to Wellington Dam. It includes two camp sites designed specifically for groups, which can also be used by individuals.
Glen Mervyn Dam is a great place to cool off or just watch the sunlight reflect off the ripples. At the tiny settlement of Mumballup walkers are rewarded a tavern. It isn't long before walkers are rewarded with views over the Preston Valley and the prospect of walking through one of the best stands of virgin jarrah forest in the south west. There are parts of the Track here that are prone to flooding during winter. The descent to Balingup Brook is steep but the walk along the brook and into the village of Balingup is picturesque with rolling green hills and open landscape.
