Very friendly staff. Lots of useful information. You can't think of everything in advance and these visitor centres are excellent for giving info, maps and ideas. We have visited a few visitors centres and have found them all to be excellent

Check it out for guides and info on local things to do and see on your stay. The building is a cool old gas station with midcentury roofline that has been preserved!

A lot of help available before you decide what to do with your time. It is near the tramway station and not far out of town .

If you need help planning your day/trip then the visitor center is definitely somewhere to go. The woman at the desk is quite helpful and there are many brochures of all the things to do in the town.
