Not open!
Apr 2021
Visited centre at 10.30 today (Tues 20/4) expecting it to have been open since 9am, and it was closed - also listed as closed tomorrow! I have never heard of a tourist visitor centre only being open a couple of days a week, and for such a big destination this is just appalling. Was not even able to collect brochures. Poor tourism presence.

Time in Northam
Mar 2021
This has to be one of the best Visitor Centres in WA (and I have visited many of them). The staff are very helpful and knowledgeable .

We signed up for a guided walking tour which took us along the river to the flour mill and then back along the main street (Fitzgerald). Great way for a first time visitor to become acquainted with some of the old buildings and their history.

Where is the welcome?!
Nov 2020
The cafe is attached to this and is the most unwelcoming entrance, with the best view in town! Impossible to tell if it is open or not, this needs a big sweep out and coat of paint. Best view in town, please please use it and promote it!

Our first stop in Northam and warmly welcomed by the young lady in the Visitor Centre. Very informative on attractions within the town and Shire. Good range of local brochures available. The Centre is in a great location overlooking the Avon River and Suspension Bridge and in addition to literature stocks, there is a good ranger of gifts and mementos.
