Bowral’s Corbett Gardens is now a free Wi-Fi hotspot, thanks to a Council initiative to help connect the residents of the Shire.
Following the successful roll out of free Wi-Fi across the Shire’s libraries, Council has now further extended the Wi-Fi service into the popular Bowral gardens.
“We’ve chosen Corbett Gardens as a trial because of its central location and popularity,” said Andy Carnahan, Wingecarribee Shire Council Customer and Information Services Manager.
“We’ve also consciously rolled out this implementation prior to Tulip Time, to allow visitors the opportunity to stay connected and updated on events and activities during the Shire’s favourite floral festival.
“The free Wi-Fi access in the gardens is perfect for email, tourist information and is a great way to stay connected on social media sites,” Mr Carnahan said.
Although many phones have mobile data plans; laptops, tablets and Wi-Fi enabled devices can also be connected to the service.
“The introduction of this free Wi-Fi service is another example of Council being more accessible and actively involved in the community and is intended to benefit both locals and guests to the gardens,” added Mr Carnahan.
