Extended hours for VIC, GeoCentre

Published on 18 September 2020


Council has extended operating hours at the Visitor Information Centre (VIC) and Albert Kersten Mining and Minerals Museum (GeoCentre).

The VIC will now operate 9am-midday and 2pm-4pm Monday to Friday, while the GeoCentre will have an extra session for visitors at 3pm Tuesday to Friday.

Council's General Manager, James Roncon, said the change in hours for both facilities would come into effect on September 21.

"The extra hours will help cater to the increased number of tourists we're seeing lately," he said

"Our staff are very passionate about their roles and are keen to increase services to tourists where possible, so I'm sure the increase in hours will be welcomed by all parties.

"Hopefully the COVID-19 situation continues to de-escalate across Australia and we can all get back to normal sooner rather than later."

UPDATE: Our Blende Street Admin Centre will also now be open 9am-3pm as of September 21.
