VisitCanberra Deputy Director Jo Verden says a pop up Canberra Region Visitor Centre is operating from Regatta Point while the finishing touches are made to the information centre’s new permanent home within the National Capital Exhibition building.
“Visitors and locals will be able to access visitor information services from the temporary pop up centre until mid July when its permanent new home opens,” Jo said.
“The Canberra Region Visitor Information Centre at 330 Northbourne Avenue closes its doors this Friday 30 June.
“The new lakeside location enables VisitCanberra to reinvigorate its visitor services for Canberra and the region.
“We’ll be offering enhanced digital technology solutions as well as continuing to offer friendly face-to-face advice.
“In its new permanent home, the Canberra Region Visitor Information Centre will be co-located alongside another of our city’s attractions, the National Capital Exhibition, providing visitors with the opportunity to learn about Canberra’s history and purpose as the nation’s capital.
“Importantly, for visitors driving to Canberra, the new Canberra Region Visitor Information Centre at Regatta Point also offers plenty of existing off street parking for cars, caravans and tour buses and access is via all main arterial roads into Canberra.
“As part of the move, extensive directional signage will be installed to direct visitors to the new central location which is also expected to be used more by Canberrans.
“The CRVC plays an important role in communicating what’s on offer to visitors in the city and region. The visitor economy employs 14,700 Canberrans and is worth $1.7 billion in domestic and international overnight visitation expenditure.”
