Seymour Visitor Information Centre is located on the Goulburn River in Seymour and contains a great deal of heritage.

One heritage site in particular is Seymour's Old Court House, it was completed in the years of 1864. For nine years beginning in 1865, the Court house was also utilised as a Telegraph Office. Additions were made to the original building in 1865 to 1906.

During the First World War more additions and repairs were carried out on the building as well as some alterations. The Court House was used up until the new and current building was completed in 1973.

In 1973 Sir George Reid, the Attorney General of Victoria, officially opened the new Court House. In 1974 the Old Court House was in danger of being demolished but was given a reprieve by the Government Buildings Advisory Council and the Minister of Public Works.

The Old Seymour Court House is now on the National Trust register of important buildings, and houses various committee groups. Mitchell Shire Council appointed a Committee of Management to oversee, manage and maintain the building, and to improve it as a community facility.

Seymour Court House still remains and is now run by local volunteers as a Visitor Information Centre. The information centre creates a warm friendly atmosphere and our volunteers provide a professional service to travellers looking for all kinds of towns, places, attractions and information.

Seymour is a centrally located town that is an hour drive north of Melbourne.

Seymour has major attractions such as parks and wildlife, RAAC Memorial and Army Tank Museum, and is home of the Seymour Annual Alternative Farming Expo. The recently opened Goulburn River High Country Rail Trail commences in nearby Tallarook. Seymour is also home to the Vietnam Veterans Commemorative Walk, due for completion in 2013.
