New look Glenbrook Visitor Information Centre to boost tourism
Visitors to the Blue Mountains in New South Wales now have improved access to sightseeing information following today’s official opening of the upgraded Glenbrook Visitor Information Centre.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, the Hon Michael McCormack MP, said the new facility is a great initiative.
“By improving the visitor information centre’s accessibility and amenity, the upgrade delivers for tourists and locals and enhances the Glenbrook area,” Mr McCormack said.
“The project will provide visitors with an attractive venue for investigating the many and varied places they can visit while in the area. The local community will also benefit, with the centre to increase visitation as well as the sale of local products and services.”
Liberal Senator for Western Sydney, Senator the Hon Marise Payne, said the new centre was yet another successful tourism-boosting project delivered by the Liberal-National Government in the Blue Mountains.
“It was wonderful to join with members of the Blue Mountains community to officially open the new, eye-catching Centre which will help enhance the services offered by local tourism operators,” Senator Payne said.
“By supporting the local tourism industry we’re also ensuring there are local job opportunities which are critical for the regional economy.
“Whether it’s funding for Varuna House or CCTV cameras for Leura, our Liberal-National Government understands the importance of delivering the modern infrastructure needed to support the Blue Mountains community, and the Centre is another example of that.
Mayor of Blue Mountains City Council Mark Greenhill welcomed the significant investment from the Australian Government in upgrading the Glenbrook Visitor Information Centre.
“The project has delivered a modern facility at the gateway to the Blue Mountains to meet the needs of our growing tourism sector – a key contributor to the regional economy,” Cr Greenhill said.
“Glenbrook Visitor Information Centre is an accredited information centre with fully trained staff, who will help visitors plan their stay and make the most of their time in the Blue Mountains region.”
The $1,399,970 Glenbrook Visitor Information Centre was a jointly funded project by the Federal Liberal and Nationals’ Government and the Blue Mountains City Council.
