All Saints Church Collie

Corner of Venn and Harvey Streets, Collie WA 6225

Enjoy a fascinating tour of the prominent Collie landmark, All Saints Church Collie. Discover the intricate detail of the historic church's interior and examine the 17th Century brass candlesticks and altar crucifix. You will be captivated by the image painted on a large mural in the Sanctuary, which took eight months to paint back in 1922. Built in the early 1900s, this spectacular landmark was funded by a generous benefactress from England who paid tribute to her late husband Colonel Arthur Noyes, who died in 1908. She funded much of the cost of building the church as well as donating many significant artefacts. Take a tour to also explore the exterior of the church to examine the architectural design of this Norman style place of worship. A gold coin donation is requested to participate in the tour. The coal mining town of Collie is a two and a half hour drive south east of Perth. Before visiting the church, stop in at the Visitors Centre to collect a comprehensive information sheet describing the history of the church and the story depicted in the mural.
