Your Whitsundays experience starts here...

Further inland from Bowen, Collinsville is a friendly country town known for its historic mining attractions and traditional country Queensland hospitality.

Primarily a mining town, one of the main highlights for history buffs is a visit to the Coalface Experience Museum and Pit Pony Experience. There's a small air strip for recreational planes and what must be one of the driest golf courses in Australia! It also features stunning hinterland, a large dam for fishing and watersports and excellent outback four wheel driving. 

The Collinsville region also plays host to the Bowen River Rodeo and Camp Draft on the Queens Birthday weekend each June.

Driving inland from the coast you arrive at Collinsville, a small outback town that makes up for its size with its huge country welcome!

Built on mining, the town celebrates this with its Coalface Experience, a fascinating look at life underground for the many miners who have worked there their whole lives.

Stop by the Pit Pony monument for a photo and have a drink or a meal at the Pit Pony Tavern – the locals are always willing to share their stories with you.
