New vision and new face at the Visitor's centre

Published on Tuesday, 14 March 2023 at 1:55:52 PM

New Visitor Services Manager, Karen Hill, has settled in well since starting in the role in October at the Visitor's Centre last year.

Karen recently made the tree change to North Greenbushes from Perth and is loving the slower pace of country life. 

Her previous roles have provided her with a wealth of experience well suited to managing the Visitor's Centre and promoting our region.

Her most recent job was with the City of Perth with the Arts, Culture and Heritage team where she managed the Boorloo Heritage Festival as well as other council projects that centred around showcasing the natural, built and cultural history of the area.

Preceding this Karen worked with the Western Australian Museum, Boola Bardip and was involved in interpreting the state in stories for the new museum.

Coming from the Museum which Karen describes as a giant Visitor's Centre, she now looks forward to showcasing Bridgetown and Greenbushes, creating a sense of place for both visitors and the local community. 

Karen shares her thoughts on her time since starting with us and what she is excited about:

“ The first few months were a whirlwind of meeting people in town, chatting to businesses, accommodation providers, tourists and getting a sense of the identity of Bridgetown-Greenbushes. I have used being new to the area as an advantage, to see things from an outside perspective, as a visitor would interact with the towns and the Visitor Centre. Now, with what I have learned, I can implement positive change in these areas”.
