Camden's Visitor Information Centre has re-opened after undergoing some minor refurbishments.

The centre is located within the historic John Oxley Cottage at Elderslie.

The $250,000 works included improvements to the accessibility of the cottage, new display systems, refreshed signage, updated landscaping and improved visitor experience.

The refurbishment also included essential maintenance to protect the heritage cottage, including the removal of mould and managing the rising damp and drainage issues.

Camden mayor Theresa Fedeli said the works have lengthened the life of one of Camden's most historic buildings.

"John Oxley Cottage has been a part of Camden's history for over 100 years and it is important to keep it up to standard," Cr Fedeli said.

"While our area continues to grow, it is equally important to pay tribute to what has made Camden so great including a number of historic buildings and churches.

"Most recently, the cottage has been home of our Visitor Information Centre, giving visitors to our historic town a destination to stop and get the best information about the area from locals themselves."

Camden Visitor Information Centre is located at 46 Camden Valley Way, Elderslie.
