On Friday morning, Collie business owners and staff were picked up by Collie Bus Tours and driven around town, as they familiarised themselves with some of the lesser known 'spots'. They visited sites such as the new Lake Kepwari; Roche Park Recreational Centre; Whispering Pines and Outback Horse Trails.
Erik from CranknCycles generously appeared to share two trail heads and what to expect when riding them, whilst Linda from Outback Horse Trails also shared her horse-riding business with everyone (always a hit with tourists!). Kellie from Roche Park Recreational Centre showed the group the inside facility which is both undercover and airconditioned, and ready for children up to 13 years of age. They also hold group classes over the summer break, including yoga!
Participants loved the event, with comments such as:
“We never knew Whispering Pines had so much to offer.”
“Whispering Pines doggy day care – what a brilliant idea if you want to bring your dog (or cat) with you on holidays.”
“Great idea about an inside facility at Roche Park to take kids when it is too hot or too cold to be outside.”
“How incredible to have Lake Kepwari on our doorstep, fabulous facilities.”
“Can’t wait to take my kids to visit the Colliefields Museum so they can do the activities mentioned.”
“I am going to recommend the Bill Weir Rolling Stock Shed to my friends who are mad about trains.”
“I didn’t know there was so much to do out at Motorplex for kids through the holidays”.
The tour went for three hours, and our Driver was so wonderful and so accommodating. Everyone loved the water and snack provided mid-way through, so a huge thank you to Collie Bus Tours.
See you all next time!

Over 13 the children can attend the centre without parental supervision. We also learnt about group classes and over the summer break there is going to be yoga held in Central Park.
