Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Different from other Visitor Centre's in that it provides information only. A little stark in appearance and does not have a particularly welcoming feel to it.

Thanks for taking the time to review our Information Centre FyingKiwi. Sorry you were disappointed we didn't have any items for sale. The main reason for not having any merchandise sales at this Visitor Centre to date, is that we have a Gallery gift shop within the same space. We are currently discussing the possibility of providing some souvenirs moving forward. We are hoping to refresh and revise our Centre as finances allow in the near future and would welcome any further feedback from you or any ideas you may have. We do hope you enjoyed our region all the same.

On a stormy day in late January popped in for restaurant tips (outside BBQ not an option in rain).
Friendly lady was patient and kind. Provided a few options to consider.
Also collected a handy map of Prom Country for next day tripping.

John at the Visitor Information Centre was very interesting, giving local knowledge about the town of Foster and beyond. To get information from a local is always value-added and can make a real difference to your visit. Our cycling group spent 4 days in the area and we were very impressed by the hospitality we received wherever we went.

I often visit the information centre in Foster, even though I'm a local. They're always helpful and the staff, friendly and professional and equipped with brochures and maps and all kinds of computerised data. They share a building with the local library and art gallery so I'm never out of there within an hour. Well worth a trip in.

I stopped by here on the way to Agnes Falls. There are many leaflets detailing the many attractions in the area. The gentleman on duty was very nice and helpful.
It is worth your time to stop in here when you are in the area

So while I have been to Foster a few times, I have never stepped into their information centre before... and it's well worth taking a look into . There is an art gallery inside with some incredibly good local paintings. Also on offer are a variety of local artists artwork. So even if you don't need information, you DO need to stop in and look around.

The lady helped me with a map today to find a couple of places that I hadn't visited before today... she was really lovely and laughed with me that I had been there so many times and yet hadn't seen half the attractions in town.

This is across the road from the public restrooms in town, which are stunningly clean and well kept and they even have a cleaning schedule on the front of the building so you know when they were last cleaned.

This is easy to find and near a few local attractions that are worth visiting such as the museum, Pearl Park... and it's a very short walk to the cafes in town.

We arrived very close to closing time but the remaining staff member was very happy to chat and recommend places for us to see and things to do (despite my assurances we could come back the next day!) All her suggestions were excellent and her patience (we had many questions) and genuine care and friendliness were outstanding. Highly recommended.
