Visitor centre right on the edge of the ocean. Very helpful with brochures etc. Leave the center and walk along the beach area and possibly see or at least hear a few sea lions.

Nice to see a Visitor Info Centre that's actually IN the heart of town! This one is on old Island Highway 19A, just north of Qualicum's Beach Front Park. Plenty of free parking on both sides. You can't miss the "little blue building".

Interesting older building - the washrooms are behind the main building. Centrally located in the main street.

This visitor centre is alongside highway 19A driving along the coastline en route to Campbell River. Very informative visit and is a recommended first stop before any further exploration.
