The NSW State Government funded Harden Visitor Information Centre (VIC) is on track for completion in March, Member for Cootamundra announced today.
The project involves the conversion of the disused History Hall Harden Murrumburrah from a redundant community space to a VIC.
“Harden Murrumburrah has so much to offer with its rich military history, historic Lighthorse connections and the flagship Kite Festival,” Ms Cooke said.
“I’m thrilled the NSW Government is supporting Hilltops Council repurpose heritage infrastructure to serve as a VIC for tourists.
“This will help ensure visitors can unlock the hidden treasures of the twin towns and spread the word about them further once they return home,” she added.
The $100,000 project was funded through the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Round One grant stream.
The VIC has been refurbished inside with floors being sanded back, windows removed on the eastern wall, plastering and painting undertaken.
Furniture has currently been ordered and will be installed over the next month. The centre is likely to be operational in March.
The centre will be managed by Hilltops Council and staffed on a voluntary basis with the aim of increasing tourism and enhancing visitor experience of the Harden Murrumburrah region.
