Do you provide visitor information at the Resource Centre?
In April 2010, the Cocos Islands Tourism Association co-located with us to provide better services to both the local community and visitors to Cocos Islands. Benefits of the co-location has included longer opening hours and the ability to provide numerous services from the one location.
