Thanks to our Pacific Palms visitor centre volunteers | Great Lakes Advocate

news, local-news,

While the Pacific Palms Visitor Information Centre has closed the toilets will remain open to the public on a trial period throughout summer Expressions of interest will soon open for community groups interested in using the space. Throughout the holidays and busy summer period, MidCoast Council will provide tourist information in the popular beachside area through ‘pop-up’ mobile sites and by working with local businesses. “We thank all the dedicated locals who have given many hours of their time, many for more than a decade, to run the visitor centre at Pacific Palms,” said MidCoast Council growth, economic development and tourism manager, Deb Tuckerman said. “By their efforts, they’ve supported local businesses and assisted countless visitors,” she said. “It’s been a strong display of community spirit and we look forward to working with the community to find new ways of delivering information to visitors going forward.” The volunteers, who have run the centre since 2005, made the decision to end their commitment following a tough few years due to the impact of COVID-19 in the community. The visitor information centre located at Blueys Beach was built in 1996 and was previously run by the former Pacific Palms Promotional Group before being passed on to council.
