Underground antics

Step back in time and gain an insight into the lives of Collie’s rugged underground miners.

The Replica Coal Mine at the Collie Visitor Centre was constructed in 1983 to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of coal discovery. Immerse yourself in a tour with a past miner (by appointment) and check out the restored locomotives while you are there.
