The staff at this Isite are very helpful. Even though their Main Street is totally dug up and the Isite is hard to get to. They have all the information you need for the area. Their gift shop has lots of neat things.

Thank you for your feedback. The main street is having a complete upgrade, it will look great when it is finished at the end of November, a little inconvenient in the mean time, but worth it. I am glad you enjoyed the gift shop.

Arrived around 4.00pm without having arranged accommodation for the night. By chance found ourselves outside the I-Site. The women behind the counter were so helpful (even though we were only looking for an AirBnB or B&B at the more budget end of the price range)...More

the attention was just fine but it did not help much with the advice how to visit Cathedral Cove. We finally rent a car but was expensive. Next time we will choose the Beach Bus.

Dear Carlos, Thanks for your feedback, we have taken this onboard and will use it to improve our future customer experience. There was a possibility that the beach bus was not operating the day you would have like to use it.
