Beat the school holiday boredom

No one will be saying ‘I’m bored,’ with this list of things to do. The best part is they are all free or really low cost activities that will have the kids sleeping soundly at the end of the day.

//CURRAWONG PUMP TRACK

This little track is is perfect for kids of all ages, with cute log roll overs for the little ones and fast track and nice berms for the bigger kids.

//MINING HISTORY

The Coalfields Museum houses an incredible collection of historical artifacts, or go underground at the Replica Mine at the Collie Visitor Centre.

//CENTRAL PARK

Grown ups can relax while kids enjoy this beautiful park and playground. If the weather is warm enough, pack bathers and listen to them shriek and giggle as they dodge the jets in the free water park.

//RIDE THE WAGYL BIDDI MTB TRAIL

Starting at Soldiers Park, the trail follows the river before breaking into two sections. The outer loop of the trail is easier for less experienced riders but the inner three loops are more challenging with awesome berms, jumps, a table top, rock gardens and steep climbs.

//TRAIN SPOTTING

Collie has a rich rail history and you will find evidence of this at various places around town. Discover a working model train display, restored rail engines and a mining shovel, and even a real old wagon, converted into a modern cafe.

//CAMP OUT AND COOK ON A CAMPFIRE

Snag a spot at Stockton Lake, and discover the joys of cooking dinner on a campfire and toasting marshmallows over the coals.

//PACK A PICNIC AND GO EXPLORING

There are lots of places to go exploring in the Collie River Valley, but one of our favourites would have to be Lennard Drive in Wellington National Park. The Rapids, Big Rock, Little Rock, Long Pool and Honeymoon Pool are all perfect for a picnic.

//TACKLE THE SKATE PARK

This state of the art Skate Park has a tight bowl, awesome ramps and other technical features for kids to test their skills.
