Sidney Visitor Information Centre is located right off of the Pat Bay Highway, across from the Mary Winspear Centre on Beacon Avenue.
The Centre has a team of dedicated and knowledgeable volunteers ready to answer your questions, provide ideas, directions and inspiration to ensure you have the most memorable experience on Vancouver Island. From hotels, dining, tours and attractions we’ve got all the information you need and are happy to make reservations for you! Along with all the ideas and inspiration our team provides, we have device charging tools, free WIFI and a computer station. Our Centre is set amongst beautiful flowers and trees in a park-like setting, complete with picnic benches and cozy lounge chairs so you can take time to figure out your plans for the day. Be sure to look for the remote kiosk down at Beacon Park for assistance on the go. We even have cold water and treats for your 4-legged travel companion.
