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 😊

Sure the people of the center are very helpful. But the tru reason to come by is for the rainforest exibition. It tells you a lot about the history of the region, including the pinelogging, Sarah Island prison settlement and the hydrodam activities. Worth the 2 dollar entry fee.

We just got in right on closing time. That didn't deter the two ladies in attendance they gave us so much information, and despite their threats, they did let us out.

We went in there to pick up our tickets for Gordon Cruise. They were helpful as parking is something of an issue if you dint know what to expect. They gave us the necessary coins for the machine, which wasn't expensive but we would have appreciated notice that this is what we would need.
