Currently, the Visitor Centre is located in the Pomeroy Sport Centre after its previous location by Centennial Park was decommissioned and demolished in 2013.

In 2019, the City launched a relocation study, looking at options as to where the new centre could be located.

Staff say there are a few options for where the new visitor centre could go, but nothing has been set in stone yet.
