Western Sydney Airport invites registrations of interest for Visitor Centre

An on-site visitor centre will give the public a first-class ticket to see Western Sydney Airport unfold in front of their eyes.

WSA Co, the Government-owned company building Western Sydney Airport, has invited registrations of interest to finalise the design and build the visitor centre, which will include a construction viewing area and interactive exhibition.

Federal Minister for Urban Infrastructure and Cities Paul Fletcher welcomed the announcement.

Assistant Minister for Finance David Coleman said the visitor centre will also include an immersive experience that will tell the story of Western Sydney Airport and the benefits it will bring to the region, particularly in terms of jobs.

The concept design for the visitor centre has been completed, with an iconic design that complements the local landscape and guides visitors into the exhibition space before opening to a spectacular full-height window view of the construction site.

The registration of interest also includes building office space for airport delivery staff near the visitor centre, which will be located off Eaton Road, in the north western area of the airport site.
