National Trust seeks Expressions of Interest to lease the Collie Roundhouse

Are you interested in leasing the only remaining railway roundhouse in Western Australia - a unique heritage building central to the future of historic Collie?

The National Trust is now calling for expressions of interest for this special opportunity.

It is a mid 1950s building constructed to maintain up to 14 steam locomotives at a time servicing the state’s vital coal industry. By the 1970’s the Roundhouse and its Turntable were decommissioned, becoming a place to store and maintain steam locomotives.

It was classified by the National Trust in 1988, and included on the State Register of Heritage Places since 1992. It is also on the Shire fo Collie’s Municipal Inventory.

The place reflects Collie’s coal mining history and the importance of the railways and the coal industry to Collie today. It is a landmark heritage listed building and has the potential to be a significant commercial opportunity.

We invite interested parties to register to attend an open day on Wednesday, 21 October 2020 and to submit an EOI by 5pm AWT Monday, 16 November 2020.
