The worst and least helpful information centre I've experienced in NZ. The two ladys running the centre on a Sunday seemed very unenthusiastic about working that day. I had visited the centre in hope of some information on the Central Otago region, and advice for...More

It was a lot bigger than I expected. Thought there would be a few leaflets, but no. My two minute trip in should have been at least 20. I will be back in a few weeks to properly look around.

Only popped in for local info but found a very good museum on site that is well worth a look around. In particular it offers an insight into the history on mining in the area.
