We always visit the tourist information places when we arrive at a new destination. My wife loves all the literature available. Good set up & yes the Lady Nelson ship is out the front & draws you to the centre.

Only visited it once and the staff are just so helpful and informative of all happenings in the Mt. Gambier district and beyond. I can still remember those friendly young smiles by our youth who were really enjoying their job.

Great place to get information on what to do in Mount Gambier and surrounds. Happy to give maps and local knowledge. The exhibition was interesting and educational. Nice mix of European and Indigenous history.

This info centre doesn’t offer much other than pamphlets and staff to give you information. I was disappointed that the lady Nelson boat was not accessible you can only view it from a distance.
