Visitor Information Centre to reopen

Horsham and Grampians Visitor Information Centre will reopen to the public for a two-day week, starting tomorrow, as the region patiently awaits more visitors when COVID-19 restrictions ease.  

Horsham Rural City Council chief executive Sunil Bhalla said the O’Callaghans Parade centre, which has been closed since March, would be open Thursdays and Fridays while the coronavirus recovery continued. 

He said staff had been provided with relevant information from Wimmera tourism operators and were planning for an increase in tourism when restrictions were lifted.

“The information centre will reopen to provide support to the local tourism industry and welcome those who are travelling throughout our region,” he said.

“For the safety of both visitors and staff, a number of measures have been put in place including sanitising stations, social-distance markers, perspex screens and only a limited number of people will be able to enter the facility at one time.

“We appreciate customers’ understanding and patience throughout this time.” 

Operating hours will be 10am to 4pm.
