Broomehill is a town on the Great Southern Highway between Katanning and Albany, in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. It was gazetted in 1890 and is the start of the 700-kilometre Holland Track: a bush track which runs from Broomehill to Coolgardie in the Eastern Goldfields.
The townsite of Collie is located 213 km south of Perth and was surveyed and gazetted in 1897 following the accidental discovery of coal by a shepherd a few years earlier. The first coalmine in Colie commenced operation in 1927 and open-cut coalmining currently employs 25% approx. of the local workforce. Although an industrial country town, Collie is surrounded by eucalypt forests which, along with walk and bike trails, natural and man-made lakes and waterways, provide wonderful recreational opportunities for locals and visitors. The incredible Wellington Dam Mural, completed in February 2021 and just a 30-minute drive from Collie, is fast becoming a major tourist drawcard.
The country town of Williams is located 161 kms south of Perth (the capital city of Western Australia), on the Albany Highway and is a popular place to stop and take a break when travelling to places in the the Great Southern Region. Wool, livestock and grain are produced on the properties surrounding the town.
