About Us

Canberra's official and fully accredited tourism information centre is operated by VisitCanberra for the benefit of tourists and locals alike.

Providing tips and assistance so you get the most out of your stay, the centre is now centrally located within the Regatta Point precinct and boasts one of Canberra’s best views, overlooking Lake Burley Griffin towards a range of iconic national attractions including Parliament House, the National Gallery of Australia, the National Library of Australia and Questacon.

Come and have a chat to our friendly guides and volunteers. They’re a wealth of local knowledge and will give you the insights you need to get the most out of your visit. Whether it’s a last-minute accommodation deal or tips about cool new restaurants and cafes, you’ll be glad you dropped in.  You can also purchase authentic Canberra region produce, and it’s a great place to pick up local merchandise or souvenirs for friends and family.

There is limited free parking, with designated free space available to park caravans, camper trailers, coaches and RVs. Free Wi-Fi is also available.
