They'll help you discover the coldest beer, the highest lookout, the best surf beach, the restaurant with the best view, the easiest bush walk, the most challenging trek, the freshest produce, the closest doctor, the best hairdresser, the nearest laundromat, the free car parks… you name it - the VIC team will know it. And if they don't... well they'll do their darndest to find out for you.
They'll give you free maps and brochures, handy tips and local knowledge as well as a warm welcome and a friendly smile to help you make the most of your stay and enjoy every day while you're here.
They also have a range of "PS I Love You " goodies to purchase for gifts, souvenirs, teatowels and a whole lot more to remember your visit by.
