Starting at Wellington Dam, you can take the short walk down to the viewing platform to see the world record breaking 8000 sqm mural on the dam wall. The mural is entitled Reflections and explores the place the river has had in the lives of the people of Collie over the years.

Don't forget to look up at the amazing artwork on the ceiling of the viewing area as well.

Follow the map into Collie (20 minutes away) and then park the car and take a stroll around town where there are another 38 stunning murals to see, starting at the Collie Visitor Centre.

Allow half to a full day to see all the murals.

Absolutely stunning art. Some brightens up otherwise dull walls of buildings, others are jus outstanding themselves. The Wellington Dam mural is just epic in size and details. Collie should be very proud of these works.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
