Staff were helpful in providing information on attractions able to be fitted into our length of stay. A good range of brochures for the local and surrounding areas were provided.

We called into the Information Centre due to the lack of information provided at Risby Cove. The lady was extremely helpful, recommended places to eat and things to do in the area. Our 2nd visit the following day was just as good - a different lady but so helpful and friendly. Happy to chat - nothing was too much trouble.

It was a wonderful day with glorious scenery, and a highlight was Kiah Davey's superb Sarah Island presentation that we were fortunate enough to be on the receiving end of. Kiah brought the island to life with her top-rate animated delivery of its history. It was obvious... More
