Postcard, Greetings from Port Macquarie, 1976

The first official Tourist Information Centre was in the converted band rotunda, an unusual nine sided structure at the northern end of Horton Street. Remodelled in 1962, the Tourist Centre provided information and served as a travel and tours booking office, initially staffed solely by volunteers. In 1964 a visiting Alderman described it as ‘the best asset this town has’.
