THE Byron Visitor Centre is undergoing a major revamp of its building and grounds.

In recent months Byron Shire Council has been repainting, repairing and rewiring the centre.

Council's Pamela Di Murro's Better Byron Crew also has replaced the garden areas with lawns, with the aim of making the centre's environment brighter and more welcoming.

John Gudgeon from the centre's management group said that besides phone and emails, the centre served an average of 450 walk-in visitors a day.

"This is a massive challenge but also a massive opportunity," he said.

"We have a new skills-based advisory group providing hands-on industry experience and expertise, and it's transforming the way we do business. "We are also hopeful of attracting more vollies to help provide visitor services.

"Volunteering here is a fun and rewarding experience, with the opportunity to work with all the tour and activity operators who form the membership base.

"The upcoming Byron Bay Town Centre master plan process being conducted by the council will give us all a great opportunity to create a spectacular and functional town square in this precinct."
