We arrived seeking information late in the afternoon, I felt they were less than interested. No attempt to provide or tempt us with information about any activities or walks in the area. This is our second time in 6 months staying in Franz Joesph, there are some incredible walks that should be promoted but the staff don't. I know Franz Joesph is having a hard time attracting tourists but with disinterested staff it doesn't help.

Very good Visitor Information Center
Feb 2020
Nice center with very helpful staff. Ample free parking in the area. Our helicopter tour left from here. They also have a number of other activities that you can book. Good size souvenir shop and cafe. We grabbed a bagel, Nutella cheesecake, juice and coffee for breakfast prior to our tour. At the conclusion of the tour, we ordered a ham and cheese toastie and chicken wrap that we ate for lunch on the way back to Greymouth. Food was good but cheesecake was exceptional.

Great Tour & Site seeing info
Jan 2020 • Friends
A really great place to get information on the latest trips and tours in and around the Franz Josef glacier area. It also has a section of different trip information broken down by nearby region. Lots of free maps and brochures.

We arrived in FranzJosef and stopped to ask a few questions regarding a heli-hike and walk we had read about. The staff was patient, a good listener, and informative.

Interesting to learn a bit more of the Mt. Cook area glaciers.
Oct 2019
Of course this a commercial centre, many things for sale but the interesting part is the info about the history of the glacier and the consequences of our environmental behaviour. Lot's of information is available and the staff is willing to explain our questions.

All smiley faces with time to help to solve all those tourist questions. The New Zealand people were all so laid back and always happy to help. They are proud of their country and always looking after it. Australia could do some serious learning from how New Zealand looks after its National parks.
