Eating Out in the Collie River Valley

For a country town we are not short on fantastic places to eat out. Here are some of out favourites!

The Colliefields

Sitting on the corner of Throssell and Steere Sts, the Colliefields is one of the oldest buildings in town.

They are open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch and with a variety  of vegan, gluten, egg, soy and dairy free options, no one is left out. Choose from big breakfasts, scrumptious lunches and decadent cakes. Most menu items are available dine in or take away.

With generous servings, excellent coffee and a huge range of teas the Colliefields gets a thumbs up from us.

Harris River Estate Winery

You will find Harris River Estate Winery 5 kms north of Collie on Harris River Rd.
They are open Wednesday to Sunday from 12 to 3.30 pm and offer delicious tapas style lunches. You can choose between a table indoors or out on the balcony. During the milder weather, we recommend a table out on the balcony over looking the vineyard and the dam.

Take the opportunity to try some of the award winning wines and treat yourself to a bottle or two to take home with you.

The Feddy

Everyone loves a good pub feed and the Federal Hotel, or Feddy, the locals call it, is the perfect place to take the entire family.

They are open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner and the large outdoors grassed area is perfect for the kids to run around, while the grown ups enjoy their meal. Just check opening times on public holidays.

The menu changes frequently, offering old favourites and fresh new options.

Wagon 537

Wagon 537 is  a real vintage rail car that has been converted into a stylish modern cafe with a fresh menu that you would expect to find in the city, not a country town.

They are conveniently located in Central Park and open early for breakfast and lunch.

The Adventure Playground and Water Park located in the same space meaning you can grab a coffee and eats while the kids play!

8 Thai Ladies

If you like quality Thai food, you will love 8 Thai Ladies. With an incredible menu of genuine Thai food to choose from, you will soon be heading back for more.

If Thai is not your thing, there are western options available as well.

You will find them, down town on Forrest St and have the choice of dining indoors or at a table on the footpath, where you can sit and watch the world go by.

Old Collie railway Station

The Old Collie Railway Station is on Throssell St, opposite the Colliefields Hotel and serves simple traditional station meals; scones, sandwiches, rolls, salad plates and pies, just like the meals that were sold there decades ago.
As you sit and eat, imagine all the people who sat in the same spot  eating similar food while waiting for the train, 100 years ago.
When you visit, allow time to watch the model trains weave their way through the tracks of the old Collie townsite.

The Kiosk at the Dam

Located just above the Wellington Dam, the Kiosk offers a range of pies, burgers and delicious home made cakes served with real coffee.

Whether you are just there exploring for the day or spending a few nights at one of the nearby Potters Gorge or honeymoon Pool, make sure you allow time to call into the Kiosk and sit and watch the blue wrens frolic in the bird bath surrounding gardens.

Their opening hours vary seasonally so check their Facebook Page for current opening times.

Jax Corner Deli and Diner

Jax Diner is located at the western end of Johnston Street. They offer both indoor dining and a lovely alfresco area.

Their menu is modern and fresh, with a delightful mini salad bar.

They are open for breakfast and lunch Monday to Saturday, plus dinner on Friday evenings. Check their Facebook Page for details and times.

The iconic Quindanning Hotel.

A long time favourite...

A long time favourite with our biking community along with others who enjoy a day trip to a destination pub on a sunny day. The Quindanning car park is often adorned with rows and rows of gleaming motorcycles. Their owners either standing around them chatting and inspecting each others rides, or they’re in the beer garden enjoying lunch.

But don’t think their clientele stops there. The “Quinny” as its known by many, is the go-to place on a sunny day. Blessed with a spacious outdoors area at the rear and front of the property there is always plenty of room to find your spot to while away the afternoon. 

Pouring their first beer in 1900, the building is steeped in history, with its long verandas, jarrah paneling and open wood fires, roaring in winter.  Less than an hour drive from the CBD along the scenic Collie-Williams road the Quinny really is a magic day trip from Collie.
