History

The Shire of Collie originated in the amalgamation of the Municipality of Collie (1901) and the Collie Road District (1900) to form the Collie Coalfields Road District on 2 March 1951. It was declared a shire and named the Shire of Collie with effect from 1 July 1961 following the passage of the Local Government Act 1960, which reformed all remaining road districts into shires.

Wards

The shire is no longer divided into wards and the eleven councillors sit at large.
