The staff could not have been more knowledgeable and helpful. Accommodation at Cradle Mountain and Burnie made with ease. Recommended the play "The Ship that Never Was" that evening which was fabulous! Delightful experience!

On arrival at Strahan we visited this Tourist Information and were very happy with the service we received. We had been advised to visit the Ship that Never Was performance before doing other sightseeing. We were able to purchase tickets at Information Centre and view that evenings show. Great fun and lots of history information. They advised on river cruises... More

A huge shout out to Bronwyn at the West Coast Information Centre. Bronwyn' service was outstanding bar none. Most helpful with booking a cruise & accomodation, if you ever need help with any bookings she is the lady to speak to, as I'm sure any of the staff would be the same 😊
