The Eden Visitor Information Centre is an award winning visitor centre housed within the iconic Eden Welcome Centre building at Snug Cove. A visit to Eden isn’t complete without dropping by the centre to learn all that Eden has to offer, as well as the stunning Sapphire Coast and surrounding areas.
Our centre is staffed by a team of very knowledgeable volunteers, overseen by Centre Manager Clair Mudaliar and supported by Supervisor Jody White. The volunteers staff the information counter 7 days a week, 363 days a year and many of them are proud to have volunteered at the centre for ten years or more. They are all Eden locals who are passionate about the town and surrounds and look forward to sharing their tips and recommendations with visitors.
OUR GIFT SHOP
The centre is home to an impressive little gift shop, showcasing locally made wares including puzzles, jewellery, candles, pottery, art, souvenirs and produce. Peruse the range of books (including children’s books) that are by local authors or tell the stories of Eden’s fascinating heritage and history.
