Visitor Information Centres
South Australia has 45 accredited Visitor Information Centres (VICs) which are spread throughout the state. They achieve their accreditation status by adhering to the Accredited VIC policy as set out by the South Australian Tourism Commission. Only Accredited VICs can display the trademarked yellow italic “i” sign, which serves to guarantee quality service and reliable information.

Accredited Visitor Information Centres play an important role in South Australia’s tourism industry. VICs 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 a region. VICs also create significant social benefits, as many rely heavily on a volunteer workforce and operate as an important community facility.
Whether you need directions, suggestions or local knowledge, just drop in to an Accredited VIC and say “hi”. Look for the blue sign with a yellow “i” on it. The staff can tell you about local attractions you shouldn't miss, the best accommodation and where to dine.
