Member for Surfers Paradise, JP Langbroek said the LNP will provide funding for 500 WiFi hotspots in key tourism destinations to allow tourists to brag to their mates about their Queensland holiday.

 

Mr Langbroek said, if elected, and LNP Government would ensure tourists had access to world-class technology so they could brag to their mates back home about their Queensland holiday.

 

"The LNP will commit $3 million over three years towards a program to install WiFi hotspots at key tourism destinations across the state," Mr Langbroek said.

 

"These WiFi hotspots will be established through grants to local councils which will be responsible for setting up the network to ensure tourists are connected to the world.

 

"We have an amazing range of natural and man-made tourism assets that are unique to Queensland and set our state apart from other destinations around Australia.

 

"We want visitors to our state to have access to technology so they can jump online and post their happy snaps to social media or to send them to family or friends."

 

Mr Langbroek said the LNP recognised the importance of the tourism sector and would work with them not against them.

 

"The LNP is about working with the industry and capitalising on our people and lifestyle, our culture and heritage, our natural wonders and climate," Mr Langbroek said.

 

"Using digital and social media to showcase our great tourism locations is an ideal way to share the word that Queensland is a great place to visit."
