Free WiFi at Kakadu and Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Parks
Sharing family highlights will be a whole lot easier for tourists visiting Kakadu and Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Parks with free WiFi now available at both locations.
Tourists can now share their holiday experiences through social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, providing invaluable exposure for the Territory.
Parks Australia and the Northern Territory Government provided equal funding for the free WiFi rollout at both parks.
Wi-Fi networks will be available from the Gunlom day use area in Kakadu National Park, and at the Talingaru sunrise viewing platform in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park during the parks opening hours.
Download limits of 200 MB and 120 minutes per person will be in place.
Kakadu National Park is a favourite spot for both tourists and Territorians, attracting 250 000 visitors last year.
The free WiFi will provide opportunities for Tourism NT and others to on-sell experiences and encourage tourists to discover other points of interest in the Territory.
Parks Australia staff coordinated the WiFi rollout to allow tourists to access detailed information about the areas they visit. This information includes types of local flora and fauna, cultural stories and safety advice.
Visitors are urged to use the Northern Territory’s official hashtag #NTAustralia to help spread the word about how amazing the Territory is.
