The City of Greater Geraldton is seeking expressions of interest from restaurant and cafe operators to run a cafe and kiosk facility at the Geraldton Visitor Centre.

When the visitor centre moved to the old railway building on Marine Terrace in 2014, a small cafe out the back of the centre was run by staff.

Though the Carriage Cafe was popular with visitors and community members, staffing resources forced the cafe to close in June, 2016.

The City’s proposed licence area covers the alfresco deck area attached to the visitor centre and a small demountable kiosk.

According to the City’s expression of interest the cafe would operate seven days-a-week, coinciding with the visitor centre’s opening hours.

A successful applicant will operate the cafe under a licence agreement with the City.

Applications close at 4pm on December 7.
