The centre has met the requirements of the SA VIC Network Audit Guidelines and the National Quality Tourism Accreditation Program, and as such can officially display the worldwide "i" symbol for information.

The centre will be staffed every day of the year excluding Christmas Day and Good Friday.

"This is fantastic for the tourism community on Kangaroo Island and we look forward to providing this service," Mrs Coppins said.

The new Kangaroo Island Tourism group was also working out well, with its latest focus being on training people to get skills to work in the tourism industry, such as getting a bus driving licence.

The new Kangaroo Island Tourism group is a total separate entity to the visitor centre.

The group was also working with TAFE and local employment agencies to get locals trained in other skills, such as truck driving and social media marketing.

Mr Coppins said Kangaroo Island Tourism had an inclusive policy and any business or entity was free to join.

Regarding the historic Frenchman's Rock currently located at the KI Visitor Centre, Mr Coppins said he would like to see it moved to the KI Airport or even at a new display point at Penneshaw.
