When you walk into Collie Canvas and Camping World the first thing you notice is the massive range of camping equipment on the shelves and lining the walls. Then you get that big country Hello that is so lacking in city stores these days.
Kaylene and Gary Evans have been running the store for over 26 years and have built up a vast knowledge of everything camping. They take pride in offering outstanding service to their customers and as a result people come from miles around to purchase the latest camping gadgets and equipment.
Whether you like to travel light and sleep in a swag with the basics or go for the whole glamping thing with all the mod cons, they will get you sorted in no time. They have a vast range of tents and bedding, fridges and eskies, tables and chairs, Webbers and gas stoves, chemical toilets and ensuite tents…….
What they don’t have you probably don’t need anyway!
For many years they have catered for the many trail users that pass through Collie during the cooler months. With both the Bibbulmun Track and the Munda Biddi passing close to town Collie Canvas and Camping World is the perfect stop for a replacement bottle of gas or some freeze dried trail food. While you are there you can check out the latest Jetboil cookers, grab some thermal underwear to protect against the colder southern mornings or an extra pair of thick trail socks. They also have a range of hiking packs suitable for day use or long hikes and everything you will need to set yourself up for your own epic walking or riding adventure.
Sausage making is a bit of a tradition in Collie and every year the locals call in for their supplies, with everything from knives to sausage making machines, fresh sausage skins and seasonings, vacuum sealers and freezer bags on offer.
Fishing and Ammunition Supplies
They also carry a range of fishing rods, lures and tackle and a wide range of ammunition and shooting accessories.
Gary is the canvas specialist. He manufactures and repairs anything from ute canopies and tool bags to patio blinds and awnings. Industrial canvas and PVC products are custom made to your requirements.
So where will you find them?
The store is easily located on the corner of Prinsep and Johnston Sts; just look for the big green building down from the traffic lights.
