Western Times - - NEWS -

THE Charleville Vis­i­tor In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre (VIC) will have a new home as of this week­end as it makes the move from the Cos­mos Cen­tre to the rail­way sta­tion this week.

Mur­weh Shire tourism man­ager Monique John­son said she was ex­cited about the new pos­si­bil­i­ties the new VIC des­ti­na­tion will pro­vide.

“The idea of the VIC mov­ing be­gan orig­i­nally af­ter a com­mu­nity meet­ing a cou­ple of years ago and the com­mu­nity re­quested it be moved to the rail­way sta­tion,” she said.

“We hope the new lo­ca­tion will bring more traf­fic into the town cen­tre and bring the 60-year-old her­itage build­ing to life again.”

It also adds an­other tourism prod­uct in town with the bilby cen­tre next door.

In the fu­ture Ms John­son hopes the VIC will pro­vide au­dio vis­ual as­pects as well as on­line book­ing fea­tures.

The VIC open­ing hours will be 9am–5pm week­days and from 10am–2pm on week­ends.
