Collie’s many fine historic buildings showcase the optimism and prosperity of WA’s booming mining years.
All Saints Anglican Church
Built in the Norman design of the early Italian churches. The interior of the church includes a beautiful mural by artist Philip Goatcher, extensive use of local jarrah timbers and lovely stained glass windows.
Collie Mine Workers Institute
The Miners Institute, as it is known by the locals, was built in 1953 and is a prominent example of the International Modern Style linked to the Art Deco period. The hall can be hired and is used for many functions including weddings, concerts and the Collie Pensioner's annual Christmas party
Built in 1913 in Federation Free Style archetecture, the Collie Court House is a single storey red brick building clad with a Marseilles tiled roof. The street facade is adorned with an embossed coat of arms flanked by decorated arches leading to the entry porch. It is still used as a courthouse today.
Old Collie Post Office
The striking arches of the old Collie Post Office are typical of early Post Office architecture. Being a significant land mark in the town, it also became a focal point for local people.
Old Police Station
The old Police Station was built around 1926 of white rendered brick.
A previous wooden building was thought to have been built on the site in 1899, by W.C Rose. 1900 the stables were built, and in 1908 the Constables quarters were built. (The stables and the Constable Quarters have since been demolished).
St David's Catholic Church Worsley
The historic St David's Catholic Church, built in the early 1900's, is situated in the old townsite of Worsley. The old timber Church is one of only two original buildings remaining in the once thriving timber town.
