Multi-million dollar tourism centre proposed for State Library

The Adelaide City Council wants to build a $4 million federal government-funded visitor centre featuring virtual reality exhibits, interactive maps and art displays inside the State Library in a bid lure more tourists to the city.

The council describes the proposed “Experience Adelaide Visitor Centre” as a “relevant, modern, one stop, full-service visitor information service in Adelaide as a gateway to South Australia”.

The federal government has already pledged $4 million for the centre’s fit out as part of the 10-year Adelaide City Deal
