The Maleny Visitor Information Centre (MVIC) is a great asset to the Maleny community. It is located in Maple Street, in front of the Community Centre and you will always find a friendly face there!
The MVIC provides information to thousands of tourists and locals about all sorts of things in the local area. In addition to visitors coming in to ask questions, the enquiries to their website and Facebook page have increased enormously in recent years.
The centre is attended by a dedicated group of volunteers (about 55 at the moment) who love sharing their local knowledge.
The information centre is responsible for their own financial obligations (rent, insurance, electricity, etc.,) and whilst they receive great support from Sunshine Coast Regional Council, they still have to raise funds, which they do this by having business partnerships with local businesses.
There are two options, and for a relatively small cost, businesses can have their brochures in the centre, have a direct link to their website from internet enquiries or have their details and relevant photos displayed on the in-house TV sets. Excellent value for only $50 or $150.
This small financial assistance to MVIC will also contribute to their maintaining this valuable service and great asset to Maleny.
If you would like to join in this excellent program or have any queries, contact Graham Gardiner on 0438933544 or call into the centre. (Pictured: Volunteers Linda, Graham and Sue - image Victoria McGuin.)
