Amazing service from the team yesterday. We had 5 nights booked on Maria island in 4 different rooms (yep what a pain that would have been) we saw online there was a room we could book for 5 consecutive nights (yay) kate went out of her way to swap and change our original booking to swap to the new room that had become available. Thanks you all so much, we appreciate it so much.

Lovely well presented info centre, with helpful staff, an information video, souvenirs for sale** and plenty of info brochures for Sheffield and beyond.

Conveniently located just off Sheffield's main street, lots of nearby parking and adjacent to Sheffield's outdoor mural display park.

Worth a visit

(** I would highly recommend the Blue Gum Gallery on Sheffield's main street for a huge selection of souvenirs and woodcrafts)

From the moment you walk in, a staff member offers their willingness to assist you in whatever direction you may wish to take. It has a plentiful supply of maps and information for local as well as district areas. This includes Mural Maps for those willing to walk the town.

We stopped by to pick up some information on the Sheffield Mural Walking Tour. Staff were very helpful and gave us a great map with the various locations. Definitely a great walk around the town admiring the artwork.

A beautiful new building. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. They helped plan the next few days of our road trip with their local knowledge.Certainly suggest a stop to collect local products as well as finding out about local places of interest. This led us to seeing platypus at the arboretum.

Definitely strange! An elderly lady behind the counter when we visited, gave us a glance and returned to watching something on her iPhone or iPad. We browsed through the literature on display and sourced some for local attractions and the next stage of our trip

Sheffield Visitor Centre offered some advice about things to see in the area... what a shame the information about road closures around the local caves was not supplied to them to advise travellers. Nevertheless they did in fact try to assist me.

I guess going out of my way by an hour and a half the next day afforded me a chance to see more of the countryside. :)

The Centre is in a great place, not far from the Main Street.

Well worth a quick stop as we learned a lot about where we could go hiking and what to see in the local area. Plus the murals are all alongside the building.

Sometimes the Info Centres can be hit and miss. Clearly, it's based upon the location and the excellent staff!!!! This place was awesome! It had the touristy important information with the usual cute things BUT had local artists represented with their bibs and bobs! Loved that support of the locals! On you guys!

Walking directly into the next section lead me to the locals art gallery where you had an opportunity to purchase their art work. I bought two un-framed water colours which were really good.
