This building and entire area surrounding it could be a fantastic hub in the centre of our city if only the city council could begin to think in these circumstances for the good of our tourist industry. As a regular traveller throughout Victoria, Australia and overseas , I am constantly embarrassed that a major city with our history does NOT have even a reasonable Information Centre !. This is an appalling situation. Some smaller towns in Victoria offer amazing facilities. ..huge building which includes information, films, gift shop, toilets etc...sometimes a small coffee shop with light refreshments. THEN ... the grounds surrounding. ...ample parking for cars, camper vans, caravans, motor homes. ..grassed areas with trees, benches and tables for travelers to rest and relax awhile. Space for children to run , play and stretch their legs after being cooped up inside a vehicle. ....oh I could go on and on. Another thought is the possibility of perhaps basic accommodation for back packers with showers as this area is close to our main railway station. I have often spoken with backpackers arriving in Ballarat and for heavens sake ...where do they go for information !!!!! Ballarat , get your act together, raise your standards and show what we can do in this beautiful city I sooooo love.
