Throwback Thursday – the Collie Mail in March 2008

It’s our favourite time of the week – a chance to reflect on the changes in our region, the faces and the fun that was being had during March 2008.

The Rock ‘n’ Coal concert came to town with acts like Mental as Anything and Daryl Braithwaite.

Collie won the Veterans Country Week Basketball title at Perry Lakes. 

Drivers along the Coalfields Highway had to adjust their speed to 100km/hr, from the 10km/hr speed limit. 

The Collie River Valley Tourist Park overflowed for three weeks in a row

Collie was declared the winner of a national competition last week. The town announced and celebrated that it would host the Triple J One Night Stand concert at the Collie Eagles Football Club grounds on April 26.
