Southbound Escapes breaths new life into abandoned Narooma Visitor Centre

Sally Bouckley at Southbound Escapes has been busy settling in to the new home of Southbound Escapes at the Narooma Visitor Information Centre. The building has been empty since May 2021 since the previous term of Eurobodalla Council closed it saying that visitors no longer used centres and that they were going to focus their tourism budget "where the fish are" being social media and advertising campaigns. Fortunately the tireless Sally Bouckley has found the drive to revitalise the old Visitor Information Centre that will also allow the Lighthouse Museum within to once again be open to the public.

Sally says "We are excited to be operating our e-bike hire and eco-tours from our new and improved premises. "What’s even more exciting is that we are now offering visitor centre services including promotion of local accommodation, restaurants, wineries, breweries, tour operators and more. "You will also find a special selection of local retail products at the centre, carefully chosen to showcase what our area has to offer - from traditional First Nations art to local history books, gourmet preserves and apparel. This is just the beginning!" "Not to mention the re-opening of the fascinating Narooma Lighthouse Museum within the centre. A very special piece of history for the whole community to enjoy. If you haven’t had a chance to pop in yet, come & check it out for yourself - we are located at 45 Princes Highway, Narooma. Open 7 days" Sally adds "If you are a local business and you would like more information on partnering with us, we would love to chat with you. Swing by the centre or send us an email We can’t wait to share our new venture with you all!"
