For some reason information centers close rather early - just as you drive into town and need info - and they are closed.

I am very sorry for your inconvenience. Please inform us of the day and time you arrived.

You don’t often find friendly staff these days but both the gentleman and lady were friendly, polite, professional and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The information centre itself was very informative with a small rock and mineral museum and information on the area.
