The land in the area is mostly flat grassland (specifically, Mitchell grass downs The townsite, which is still identified on many maps as Collingwood, lies on the Diamantina River Road some four kilometres along from its junction with the Kennedy Developmental Road lying to the north, and there is a short road to the south of the former leading to what once was the Collingwood Cemetery.
Upwards of 60 sheep and cattle stations lie within 70 km of the Collingwood site, some of which even date from the time when the town existed (see Collingwood today below), and figured in the town's short history.
I'm a Carlton member of many years and a third generation supporter. I received a single SMS from my brother after the Grand Final, where he said: "There is only one thing better than the Blues winning, and that is Collingwood losing". The retorts from Collingwood supporters - often about soft-skinned, blond-headed Carlton players and silver spoon-fed CEOs - always came thick and fast.
As many readers would know, it is not like Collingwood supporters to be caught without an effective comeback.
Collingwood is a former town in the Channel Country in Central West Queensland, Australia, in the Shire of Winton.
Collingwood was founded in the 1870s, and it was hoped that the town would thrive and grow into a regional centre that would foster the development of pastoral activity in the Diamantina region, an industry of great local importance to this day.
Irresistible for sure, this solid brick home is loaded with so many extras.
SUMMARY These talent-laden, developing teams entered the season with great expectations that were tempered externally after they slumped to 0-2 starts.
However, they got their seasons back on track with wins at the weekend, with the fast-starting Pies being the more impressive in clawing to a one-point win over Sydney at the SCG, while a wasteful St Kilda did as expected against the Brisbane Lions.
St Kilda hasn't beaten the Magpies there since 2010. Taylor Adams' star continues to rise with the Pies' co-vice-captain climbing to a career-high ranking of 88th in the Schick AFL Player Ratings.
He leapt 15 places after a best-afield performance in the win over Sydney.
