Exmouth’s $32 million Ningaloo Centre will finally opened to the public nearly three months after the opening ceremony was held during Exmouth’s 50th anniversary celebrations.

The facility will open on December 4 after the Shire of Exmouth received approval to move its administration centre into the building.

The Shire move paves the way for the Ningaloo Centre’s exhibits to open, with the visitor centre expected to relocate in January 2018.

Shire of Exmouth chief executive Cameron Woods said the Maidstone Crescent office would close for one day on December 1 and reopen on December 4 in the Ningaloo Centre.

“We have planned the move with minimal disruption to services, so there will be minimal impact on the community,” he said.

“The Ningaloo Centre offers new and exciting opportunities for Exmouth as a tourism destination and we will be working closely with local tourism businesses, the visitor centre and the regional and State tourism stakeholders to ensure our community gets maximum benefit from it.”

Central Regional TAFE, the University of Western Australia Oceans Institute and the Gascoyne Development Commission are planning their moves into the centre.

An expression of interest for the Ningaloo Centre cafe space will go to the market this week.
