    We are excited to announce that the renewed Visitor Information Centre at The Entrance is open to the public.

    We prioritised this important project to upgrade to a multipurpose facility and improve toilets and accessibility that will not only help to drive tourism and economic spend, but also be a year-round space for locals to enjoy.

    The completed multipurpose facility includes:

    • an interactive Visitor Information Centre
    • new and modern amenities including include male, female and unisex toilets, a parents room, a 24/7 adult accessible change facility (AACF) and event toilets
    • improved layout and decking for community and visitor use
    • a dedicated space for local makers and creators to entice visitors to take home something from the Coast
    • a bookable function area with a modern event space and purpose-built green room

    Benefits for the community

    By creating an inviting and vibrant hub for locals and tourists to find key information we will increase the uptake of day trips, overnight stays and consequent spending, which is vital for the continued growth of our region’s economy. The new Centre will educate and inform visitors and residents about the diverse range of experiences on offer across the Coast to disperse people and spend throughout the region.

    With an already purpose-built stage and adjoining grounds, these upgrades will also improve our capacity to host large-scale events and festivals and to attract exciting new acts to the Coast.

    In addition we are providing locals with improved facilities and an opportunity to learn more about the region's offerings and connect with our local makers and creators.

    Opening hours and other information 

    The Visitor Information Centre will be open to the public seven days per week from 9.30am to 4.30pm. For residents and businesses wanting to enquire about booking the meeting room space located within the Centre, please contact 02 4304 7211.

This program supports local councils to deliver priority local road and community infrastructure projects across Australia.
