The first phase of the Margaret River Visitor Centre Makeover (announced in November) will commence within the next two weeks. The $600,000 project, partially funded by the Regional Visitor Centre Sustainability Grant Program, will deliver a revitalised visitor experience that will enable us to better connect visitors with your business.
As our primary visitor servicing hubs, this project will bring the Margaret River Visitor Centre in line with the new Busselton Visitor Centre, completed in early 2017, allowing increased visitor dispersal throughout the region.
The project will be completed in three phases over the next six months, which will allow the visitor centre to remain open for the entire duration of the renovation.
How will this affect you?
As of the 15th of January the car park at the rear of the visitor centre will be partially fenced off with access to the building only available through the front entrance on Bussell Highway.
30% of the MRVC rear car park space will be fenced off for the building compound. There will be materials arriving though out the day, causing further congestion. Tour operators who use the rear car park as a pick up spot are welcome to continue to do so during works or use the bus interchange on Fearn Avenue. If you have any questions or to advise the Visitor Centre staff of any pick up location changes please contact Matt.email@example.com
We will continue to provide regular updates on the project, via this page and our member e-newsletter. Up next, you will be able to preview the design mock-ups for our new look visitor centre.
