Uralla Visitor Information Centre Improvement Project

Funding-acknowledgement.jpg

Construction is now underway at the Uralla Visitor Information Centre, which has been made possible by grant funding provided by the NSW State Government and Australian Federal Government.

The Uralla Visitor Information Centre improvement project has been jointly funded by both State and Federal Government funding streams, with a commitment from the NSW Government’s Drought Stimulus Package of $400,000 and funding of $100,000 provided by the Australian Government’s Drought Communities Extension Programme.

Project Overview

The scope of works for the Uralla Visitor Information Centre (VIC) improvement project includes internal and external renovations.

Internal works under the VIC improvement project consist of integrating existing vacant space into the visitor services area and refreshing the interior by removing unnecessary internal walls. These works will also provide a flexible space which can accommodate additional pop up retail, promotional displays and activities.

The VIC’s kitchen facilities will also get an upgrade to provide a more attractive rental space for casual pop up retail operators or other promotional activities.

External works of the project will refresh the exterior appearance of the building and improve the VIC’s connection to the adjacent Porter Park and the Uralla Library. The grounds of the VIC will also get an upgrade with the installation of a pergola, landscaping works, and interpretive signage in a native plant garden.

The project is currently scheduled for completion late April 2021.
