Glenbrook Visitor Information Centre Refurbishment

The Glenbrook Visitor Information Centre will be closed for refurbishment and is scheduled to reopen later this year.

The refurbishment will transform the current Glenbrook Visitor Information Centre into a modern, leading edge, and environmentally sound facility which will incorporate the use of natural lighting while complimenting the surrounding landscape.

Increased floor space within the new building will allow the centre to expand on existing printed collateral promoting the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area whilst providing the flexibility to increase the levels of Australian Made and locally sourced products.

During the construction period there will not be access to the parking bay on Hamment Place/Great Western Highway, however visitors are still encouraged to use the parking area off Ross Street if they are seeking a rest stop.

The Glenbrook Park, accessible from the Ross street parking area does provide a relaxed mountain stop with public toilet and picnic area facilities.

For all enquiries relating to the closure of the Glenbrook Visitor Information Centre, please contact Nicole Bartolo on 4723 5114 or

How to report littering from a vehicle

You can help stop litter where it starts!

Most people in NSW find roadside and community litter offensive and want to see this problem reduced! The new public reporting system will help to increase awareness of the problem.

  • Research shows that no one likes a litterer.
  • Littering from a vehicle is a major contributor to roadside and public place litter.
  • Over 90 percent of reports for littering from a vehicle is for cigarette butts!
  • From February 2015, the NSW EPA will issue a penalty notice for littering from a vehicle based on the information received in reports from members of the public who are over 18.
  • Littering from a motor vehicle is covered under the NSW Protection of the Environment Operations Act (1997).
  • Reports can no longer be received by Environment Line.
