A $3 million proposal to install WiFi hotspots at 500 key destinations in Australia will boost tourism, according to Liberal National Party of Queensland leader, Tim Nicholls.

He announced the WiFi plan to guests and the media at Dreamworld, reports Travel Pulse.

One of the key objectives is to attract tourists back to struggling theme parks on the Gold Coast. Among them is Dreamworld, the site of a serious accident in 2016 that cost the lives of four guests.

According to the article, the proposal was not intended to downplay the accident but to help reignite the tourist industry.

Nicholls described tourism as one of the foundations of Queensland’s economy. He said he wanted to support theme parks.

Expressions of interest have already been received from 300 of the 500 planned WiFi hotspot locations.

More are expected to respond as the plan moves forward.
