A Bumper Season For Moruya’s Volunteer Information Centre

After a very busy holiday season the volunteer operated Moruya Town & Visitor Information Centre has closed until next summer.

The centre is an initiative of the Moruya Business Chamber and opened for 39 days, with 14 volunteers staffing the centre to talk to visitors and give out information about the Moruya district.

Business Chamber president Jude Manahan said over 360 people came into the centre.

“The location of the information centre inside Moruya Books on Church Street made the centre convenient and accessible to both visitors and locals,” she said.

“It was well received by the 360 visitors, who left with words of thanks for the information and the opportunity to speak with a local.

“Even our locals who they thought they knew it all were surprised with the new information they discovered.”

The centre promoted local businesses with a Buy Local display of Christmas gift ideas and offered holidaymakers ideas on what to do around Moruya.

The cards were also widely distributed across the shire at other visitor information centres and via our many holiday accommodation options

Mrs Manahan offered a special thank you to Janice Sagar, the owner of Moruya Books for hosting the information centre.

“I also want to thank the volunteer staff who make it possible for locals and visitors to have a one stop place for information on entertainment, brochures on local nature based and indoor activities and answer questions about ‘where to find what’ within the local businesses’” she said.

The Moruya Business Chamber plans to reopen the Town & Visitor Information Centre in early December 2019.
