With specific information in mind I received exceptional service and local insight. Castlemaine has a lot to offer so it is worth dropping in to pick up suggestions. Great service and we are grateful to the volunteers for providing this for us visitors.

Dropped in a couple of times for information and maps. Staff were very helpful and up for a laugh. They have had exhibits here each time I have visited so it makes for an interesting stop in it's own right.

I love this building, with its clerestory ceilings. It is now the Information Centre. Although it has stairs at the front there is a shallow ramp at the rear of the building. All the local and regional tourist information you need is available here.
