Come along to the biggest Christmas pageant in the South West and join in the old-time Christmas spirit, on Saturday, 15 December 2018, from 2pm-10.30pm in Forrest St and Central Park, Collie.

Every year, Santa makes a special visit to the Christmas Pageant, ready to create some beautiful memories for you and your family.

Santa will pop out to his float to wave to the whole crowd during the ever-popular street parade at 6-7pm, then back into the grotto until 9pm.

Ladybird Fairies and Green Dragon are back for this year’s pageant, along with juggling duo Bizircus Stilt Walking Stilt Chefs and then the Flaming Idiots performing in the Music Shell.

Kids can try out their skills on the Radrock Climbing Wall, Extreme Bungee Trampolines, High Rope Course or work their way through the side show and show rides operating right throughout the festival.

More for the kids! Top of the Stairs Puppetry and also Kite Kinetics during the afternoon and in the Street Parade. Plus, Face Painters for the littlies.

Hidden Talent will keep your ears entertained with amazing local performers at various locations throughout the afternoon and Carols from the Premier Hotel Balcony during the Street Parade.

For the older crowd, but young at heart, the fantastic eight-piece Smugglers will perform in the Music Shell from 8pm to 10.30pm.

We have a full house of market stalls this year open from 2-9pm – everything from gourmet food and drink, knick-knacks, beauty products, artisan and unique products and services.

Bring the whole family down for this once-a-year street party.

Goods Shed Markets @ Goods Shed | Collie | Western Australia | Australia

The “shed” was once the bustling heart of the town, where the steam trains of old pulled right in to unload their cargo. One of the features of the building are the massive jarrah beams of a size that are rarely seen today.

Browse around the many stalls of cakes, books, plants, crafts, fruit, cakes, sheep manure, etc.

View the railway interpretive display in the ticket office or enjoy morning tea in the “Coach Café”, a restored dining car

Elemental. Land. Layers. Life. @ Collie Art Gallery | Collie | Western Australia | Australia

The Collie Art Gallery will be hosting an exhibition of works by Perth-based artist, Carol Rowling. Carol’s work explores the landscape from above, the myriad of colours, marks, layers, platelets and textures she sees from flying over this vast and fascinating country of ours.

She interprets this by carving into layers of canvas with a power tool. When assembling each work, Carol places the canvas over pre-shaped wood and stretcher frames.

This approach represents the true depiction of decades of aerial views, poignant memories of landscapes and photography.
