$120,000 Visitor Centre revamp starts

The Broome Visitor Centre entered the construction phase of its $120,000 revamp last week, which will transform the centre into a cultural attraction of its own.

The revamp involves 28 new display units, a theatre room, stairs off the deck on to Male Oval, renovation of storage rooms into office spaces and the introduction of modular units instead of desks, to increase the versatility of the room.

Print, digital and brochure racks will be utilised within the display units to incorporate stories from around the Kimberley region.
Similarly, the theatre room will be used to teach tourists about the history of the town in an interactive way.

The refurbishment was funded in part by Tourism WA and Royalties for Regions, which granted $80,000 as part of a sustainability initiative that saw 36 centres around the State benefit from funding.

The centre also put $40,000 towards the project.
