Visitors welcomed as new hub opens

Buloke Shire Council, Victoria, last month saw the official opening of the new Sea Lake Visitor Information Hub as well as the Sod-turning Ceremony at the new Sea Lake Housing Development site.

The former Sea Lake Shire Office has been completely transformed and is now open as an independently operated Visitor Information Hub. The Visitors Information Hub includes a central tourism hub, indigenous art gallery and is a one-stop-shop for a variety of beautiful locally made goods as well as information on Sea Lake and surrounds.

The project, which was funded by the State Governments Crisis Committee of Cabinet – Infrastructure Stimulus Fund, was officially opened by The Hon. Mary-Anne Thomas, Minister for Regional Development, Mayor Daryl Warren and Operator Julie Pringle.

Minister for Regional Development, Mary-Anne Thomas, said, “This project will boost visitation to Sea Lake while creating more jobs – ensuring Victoria continues to have our nation’s most vibrant, sustainable and successful regional economies.”

Operator of the Information Hub, Julie Pringle, said she was proud of the Information Hub.

“The centre has a strong focus on the region and it’s a great asset for the Shire to have.”
