It is less than an hour's drive from the coast, through some outback
The main reason the town exists is its coal
There some murals
its history, ...
... and there is the Coal
Museum where you can find out more about the town's mining
and present. It's a good one if you are into mining.
There is also a mining
and of course the two mines - Collinsville
Coal Mine, and Sonoma
On 13. October every year, a Miners'
is held at the Museum, to remember the 26 men who have lost their lives
in the mines of Collinsville. The October 13th was the day for the
worst disaster of the town when seven men lost their lives in an
underground mine explosion.
Like elsewhere in countryside Australia, pubs are hotels where you can
stay. But for
an even better outback
I recommend Bowen
