This is the place to start your visit, the ladies working on the date we visited were really informative and friendly. Check into to see the shark exhibit, the replica shark is just enormous and worth the very low admittance fee!

We went to get information but left with much more. The virtual shark cage was a real winner. There was really sound advice from the friendly staff.

The staff here are excellent and do a terrific job of representing their town. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The art gallery attached to the centre is well worth a visit.

Staff at this spacious and well equipped Visitors Centre are friendly and informative. There's also a small art gallery attached and close by is the library which is a refurbished railway station. It's worth a visit and a very relaxing and modern library.
