Council visitor services back to 7 days a week

28th May 2020
Council’s Visitor Information Centres will re-open 7 days a week from Friday, June 5.

With the further easing of COVID-19 restrictions on Local Government facilities and services, Wattle Range Council’s three Visitor Information Centres will be open to tourists and the general public 7 days a week from Friday the 5th of June.

“As we had previously indicated, the re-opening process was always going to be undertaken in a measured and controlled way to ensure both staff and public safety. This next step will enable tourists to come into the Centres for advice and assistance during their stay in our district," Council’s Chief Executive Officer, Ben Gower explains.

"The underlying principles of 4 square metres per person, 1.5 metres between people, regular hand washing and cleaning regimes will remain in-place, along with plenty of appropriate signage to remind our visitors of their obligations.

“Over this coming long weekend, all three Centres will be open from 10am to 3pm, with weekday opening hours following the long weekend being from 9 am to 4 pm. Council staff will be monitoring the level of activity across all three Centres and will adjust trading hours if required. The Centres will continue to be cleaned on a regular basis.

"We sincerely appreciate the community’s ongoing support as we all navigate our way through this pandemic, and we are certainly looking forward to seeing tourists back in our patch enjoying the fantastic treasures we have across the Wattle Range district,” Mr Gower said.
