Winter Getaway Day 11

We started our day with fellow traveller and club member Wayne Millman showing us around Collie (his home town). We got a guided tour of the new murals around the town and a look at the huge new DFES training and workshop facilities being constructed.

The Collie Veteran Car Club members (4 couples of which have been travelling with us) then hosted us to a lovely morning tea at their clubrooms in town.

Then the day’s (short) travels began with the drive to Williams via Darkan. Just east of Collie, we got glimpses of the huge coal mines. They look like sand pits with grey streaks.

After lunch at the Williams Woolshed, it was a short drive across to Narrogin – our last night’s stop on this trip.
