Visitors to the Hampton Visitor Information Centre regularly stop just to take in the history of the 100 year old building. Some like to wonder at the pioneering spirit of the first settlers, others like to reminisce about their days growing up in a similar home, some like to marvel at the simple but effective architecture of days gone by and many simply like to experience the character that radiates from such a building. The warmth emanating from the honey coloured hoop pine walls and the wide planks of the tallowwood floors mixed with the smell of the linseed oil finish make this a delightful place to pick up tourist information, talk to a local and linger awhile.
