About Visitor Information Centres (VICs)

Accredited Visitor Information Centres (VICs) play an important role in Queensland's tourism industry.  They make a significant economic contribution to tourism, particularly in regional areas, by providing information to visitors that encourages them to stay longer, spend more money, experience more attractions and revisit. VICs also create significant social benefits, as many rely heavily on a volunteer workforce and operate as an important community facility.

In recent years there has been increased recognition of the role of VICs and their importance in providing high quality tourist information. 

There are currently 117 Accredited VICs in the Network; view these centres here.  

We encourage you to view the Eligibility for accreditation if you are interested in becoming an Accredited Visitor Information Centre.


Visitor Information Centre Directions Paper - National

Australia's Accredited VICs: A Strategic Directions Paper was launched in October 2014.  Since 2010, a number of state and territory tourism organisations (STOs) have commissioned reports on future of VICs.  This National Directions Paper distils the key finding of those reports.  The intention of the paper is to direct the national network of accredited VICs towards a future where they have a clear, relevant and valued role in tourism.
