Collinsville Coalface Experience

Collinsville, Whitsunday Area

The Collinsville Coalface Experience celebrates the unique nature of Collinsville's, and indeed Australia‘s, coal mining heritage; and the battles, victories, hardships and joys of life for the coal miner - above ground and below, across the decades.

Capturing the tears and the smiles, the Coalface Experience showcases the unique stories of the men and women who lived through the early years of coal mining in Collinsville. The rhythm of day to day life is told through the voices of the locals, as well as their reaction to one of the greatest tragedies witnessed in the history of mining in Australia .

The Coalface Experience combines the latest technology in museum displays with an eerie sense of life underground as the story of mining life and technique is explained in incredible detail.

Today the Coalface Experience reminds us of the battles won and lost by Australia's forebearers, and the importance of unity and friendship in the good times and the bad. A visit to the Collinsville Coalface Experience is certainly an emotional one, yet crucial in the telling of history across the generations.
