Thursday 16th October 2008, Collie.

We have now started our journey back to Melbourne for Xmas. We have a few things to do and see on our way, the first being Collie, about 200K south of Perth and inland from Bunbury (see map). Linda had heard about Collie long before we headed across to WA, but can’t remember what is so special about it so we couldn’t leave the area without checking it out. Having only gotten here today we haven’t seen much, but it does look like a decent enough place with a fair bit to do and see. There are quite a few dams in the area, apparently worth a look, and a couple of national parks, so along with a trip into Bunbury one day for a look we should be able to fill in a week easily enough.
