Glenbrook Visitor Information Centre Refurbishment

The Glenbrook Visitor Information Centre will be closed for refurbishment and is scheduled to reopen in June 2018.

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 nbartolo@bmcc.nsw.gov.au
