As tourists are enticed to return to South Australia's regions for the long weekend, Port Lincoln's Visitor Information Centre will reopen this Friday, June 5.

The City of Port Lincoln announced that the centre would be open to the public as the state government eased COVID-19 restrictions.

From this Friday, the Visitor Information Centre will be open from 9am to 4pm Monday to Saturday and 10am to 2pm on the Sunday and Monday of the long weekend.

Along with the VIC, the council is also reopening the Nautilus Arts Centre for access to its gallery and gallery shop from Tuesday, June 9.

These sections will be open from 10am to 3pm Monday to Friday and 10am to 1pm Saturdays, while the theatre and media room will stay closed for the moment.

Mayor Brad Flaherty said now was a great time to get out and explore South Australia, and experience the Eyre Peninsula's abundance of seafood, coastlines, activities and tour offerings, and food and wine experiences.

"We are pleased to be able to reopen the visitor centre just in time for the long weekend to support our tourism industry and welcome fellow South Australians back to our beautiful city," he said.

Mr Flaherty said the 'Manggan - gather, gathers, gathering' exhibition was a "must-see", along with the "fabulous" locally-handcrafted work for sale at the shop.

"I also encourage loyal locals to get out there this long weekend, enjoy what our region has to offer and support our pubs, restaurants, cafes, shops and tourism operators," he said.

Group number restrictions and other social distancing protocols will apply.
