Collie’s Heritage site now open for lease interest.

  • Posted On: 8 September 2018

The National Trust of Western Australia is seeking expressions of interest for the first time to lease the former railway Roundhouse in Collie and to find possible tourism and community options for the building.

Thought to be the only remaining structure of its type in the state, the building is part of the national heritage list.

Built in the early 1950’s, the Roundhouse housed 14 steam locomotives and today remains intact with the 100ft turntable and pit, the largest in WA. 

Charted to protect and promote the heritage values of the building since 2011, the National Trust have recognised the way to achieve this is by supporting a range of activities and uses for the site. 

National Trust of Western Australia’s acting chief executive officer  said the heritage site has great significance to the town and the local community.
