Free wi-fi to keep visitors connected

​A free wi-fi hotspot at the Bunbury Visitor Centre is now keeping travellers connected, thanks to a recent Tourism WA grant.

The project will see Tourism WA supply the wi-fi service, utilising Royalties For Regions funds, for the next 12 months with the City to assess its use and consider continuing the service using alternative funding.

Users can log on to the service by linking their device to the “WA Tourism Free Wifi” connection and then accepting the terms and conditions.

Download limits apply and the service is available in the Visitor Centre building and for about 100m surrounding the Hayley Street facility, meaning travellers who park in the dedicated RV bay can also make use of it.

City of Bunbury Manager Tourism, Events and Promotion Isabell Evans said free wi-fi provided significant benefits for visitors.

“Free wi-fi will allow travellers to keep in touch with family and friends and log in to social media without having to use their own mobile data,” Ms Evans said.

“It also means visitors to Bunbury can easily access local websites or use apps that will help them find food, accommodation, shopping and activities while visiting our city.”

The City has more free wi-fi hotspots planned in the near future, including a dedicated service at the revitalised Koombana foreshore.
