Driving inland from the Bowen coast you will arrive at Collinsville, a small country town with a huge country welcome! This relaxed town is known for its rich mining history and traditional country Queensland hospitality. From camping trips and scenic drives to fishing and watersports on the dam, to the annual Bowen River Rodeo and Campdraft... Collinsville has everything you need to build a home!

The three school communities are at the heart of this rural town. When you join Collinsvile State High School, you will be a part of a family of teachers who happily give their time to building lasting relationships with students, their families and the wider community.
