Nestled amongst eucalyptus trees in the middle of the park, Maitland Bay Information Centre is the ideal spot to begin exploring Bouddi.

Visit the centre to collect maps and brochures and chat with the friendly community volunteers who staff the centre on weekends and public holidays. The kids can get hands-on with the interactive displays, while the centre’s large mural and other artworks are sure to capture everyone’s attention.

Built in 1945, the centre commenced its life as a family home. Another part of the building was built in 1950, and used as a shop that became famous for its Devonshire teas.

Maitland Bay Information Centre is also a great place to begin your exploration of Bouddi National Park, with Maitland Bay track, Bullimah Spur track and Bouddi Ridge explorer beginning closeby.
