"Visitors can drop in for a complimentary coffee and pick up the city's new holiday guide, which features more than 90 Redlands Coast tourism operators and contains a wealth of information about what makes Redlands Coast such a special place."

"When you visit the VIC you will get a warm welcome from our friendly staff, advice on where to find naturally wonderful Redlands Coast attractions on our islands, mainland and hinterland, where you can see native fauna and flora and enjoy the serenity of bushland trails and conservation areas, how you can step back in time and relive our exciting past on heritage trails and at local museums, where to find the best restaurants and eateries, and much more."
