Visitor Information Centres in Montville, Glass House to re-open

Visit Sunshine Coast (VSC) Visitor Information Centres in Glass House and Montville will re-open their doors from tomorrow Saturday 13 June, in line with eased travel restrictions in Queensland.

The visitor information centres (VICs) temporarily closed their doors in March, following social distancing measures and public health directions. The VIC at Sunshine Coast Airport remains temporarily closed.

VSC Industry and Membership Development Manager Andrew Fairbairn said the safety of VSC staff, volunteers and visitors remained at the forefront of the centres’ re-opening.

“The Montville and Glass House centres will initially open at reduced hours and be staffed by VSC employees,” he said.

“Our team of knowledgeable and passionate volunteers will return to the centres in the coming months.

“Visitors to the information centres will be required to practise social distancing, with a limit to how many visitors can enter the Glass House centre at any one time.

“We are incredibly excited to welcome visitors back to the Sunshine Coast and providing up-to-date information on the region’s tourism attractions and businesses has never been more important.”

During the centres’ temporary closure, the team of VSC volunteers have continued to broaden their knowledge of the region’s tourism industry, taking part with weekly virtual famils to Sunshine Coast attractions and staying connected as ‘Team Sunshine Coast’ with online catch-ups.

From 13 June, the Glass House and Montville VICs will operate from 10am-2pm on weekdays.

On weekends, The Glass House VIC will open 9am-12pm Saturday and Sunday, and the Montville VIC will be open 12:30pm-4pm on Saturday only.
