Visitor Information Centre opening hours to change from 8 August - 6 July 2015
A change in the Visitor Information Centre’s (VIC) opening hours will come into effect on August 8.
The new hours will align the VIC with other facilities in the Civic Centre Precinct, such as the Museum of the Riverina, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery and Wagga Wagga City Library.
The VIC will continue to be open seven days a week, but will now close at 4pm on Saturdays and will be open from 9.30am to 2pm on Sundays.
Along with being closed on Christmas Day, the Tarcutta Street facility will also shut on Good Friday, Boxing Day and for a half day on Anzac Day.
“Keeping the hours aligned with the other facilities in the Civic Centre means there is a greater connection for visitors,” Council’s Director Commercial and Economic Development Peter Adams said.
“It also means staff across the Civic Centre precinct can assist each other during peak times.”
Dr Adams said there were a number of ways for visitors to find information about Wagga and help them discover everything it has to offer.
“If you have friends or family in town, there’s a wealth of handy information at their fingertips at www.visitwagga.com, including our official visitor guide, day trip and travel planners, what’s on guides and accommodation information.
“We've seen a sizeable increase in visits to the website in recent years, with the 2014/15 figures more than 320,000, which is a 24 per cent increase on the prior year.
“The notice board outside of the VIC also contains essential information for visitors and there is also the new smartphone app My AppVenture, which is available for download now.
“Griffith, Temora and Lockhart have joined Wagga, Junee and Coolamon on the app, which allows both visitors and locals to plan their trip and discover the region.”
My AppVenture is available on the App Store now and an Android version is currently in development.
You can contact the VIC at 1300 100 122 or online at www.visitwagga.com.
