I cannot begin to say how much I appreciated the help from the Port Campbell Information Centre. Our family started planning our trip along the Great Ocean Road and only had 2 days in the area. I contacted them to get help, to see what were the best spots to see and do in the area. They sent me emails on the attractions in the area, told me the best spots to see and even a trail at one of the locations that not many people know about. We were able to go to the places that we planned out and I also called into the Information Centre to say hello and see if there was anything else that we needed to know. They were very helpful. Hopefully we get to go back into the area again. There's so much to see and do around the Port Campbell area. Please support the Information Centres wherever you are in your journeys. You will find out so much about the areas. Get all the inside information for the area!!

I cannot praise Nina enough. She asked us how long we had and then suggested how to best use our time. She was knowledgeable, informative, responsive to our questions and gave us great advice. By the time we left, we knew what time sunset was, where to shop, where there were steps, and the best time to avoid the crowds. It was like we were the first people she’d ever told the information to, she was so patient and enthusiastic.
We left with the relevant maps and leaflets and did everything we wanted to.
Well worth a visit, especially if you don’t have loads of time here.

While this isn't the largest tourist centre you'll ever wander into it does have some interesting displays about the Loch Ard and the staff are friendly and have good local information.

If you are wanting to pick up some souvenirs from the local area this is a good spot and there are several parking spots nearby.

Mark and Nina are enthusiastic and passionate about their region. They have done a lot of homework and know so much about the area.

They are the best tourist information staff we have ever met.

Good information on shipwreck background, however nothing on Indigenous history. That part of history has many more stories to tell

Thanks, We couldn't agree more Brett, these are the traditional lands of the Kirrae Whurrong people of the Eastern Maar nation. We look forward to being able to share stories and cultural wisdom when we are able to. The Kirrae Whurrung have lived through the shaping of this scenery and their stories will be told.

This must be the most exceptional information centre we have visited, the displays about the shipwrecks were really engaging and interesting . The highlight was the personalised service we were given. This lead to us enjoying an afternoon cycle in the rail trail at Timpoon that we would not have found ourselves.

Open every day. You could spend a good amount of time here checking out the displays and artefacts from the various local shipwrecks over the past couple of hundred years.

During this road trip, this was my favourite Information Centre... because it's more than just pamphlet's and information... it's an immersive experience.

I have been to Flagstaff's light show in Warrnambool twice to watch the story about the Loch Ard and it's story. And ... little did I know exactly how far away from Warrnambool that actually occurred... the disaster occurred much closer to this little town. They have the anchor of the Loch Ard on display and other relics from the ship. It's a small, but inviting Centre. I bought another book here... the staff member was lovely and very helpful. She also had oodles of historical information to impart. I could have talked to her longer, but my Uncle was keen to keep moving.

If you are in town... I recommend a visit here not just to understand what's around to look at...but what else might be on offer that you would otherwise miss. The motor inn we were staying in had a faulty dryer so the lady who was working here on the day sent us to the Recreation Area to use their dryers. The Recreation Area offers an amazing area for campers.

Again... I can't force your hand, but if I was a traveller... this is where I would want to get information from. And ... a little bit of history to boot.
