Special architectural features On the corner of Venn and Harvey streets is All Saints Anglican Church which was opened in 1915 after it had been built in a traditional Norman style with money provided by a Lady Noyes in England. 
Special fittings The church has superb brass candlesticks and an altar crucifix which reputedly date from the seventeenth century. In the Sanctuary is a large mural which took 8 months in 1922 to paint. It was actually painted on a large frame in Perth and attached to the sanctuary wall later. It is interesting to note the local subject matter at the extremities of the mural. On the far right are two miners framed in a pit tunnel while on the far left are two Aborigines sheltering under a tree.
There is an excellent series of sheets on the history of the church which describe in great detail the figures in the mural. Titled The History of All Saints Church, Collie it is available from the Tourist Information Centre.
