Yorke Peninsula the First to Embrace Cutting Edge Technology


Yorke Peninsula Tourism have launched a new Progressive Web App, which allows tourists to access the Yorke Peninsula Tourism website when out of Wi-Fi range.

The app aims to eliminate Wi-Fi black spots, allowing tourists to download the website in a small ‘data packet’ which can later be accessed at any time in any location.

The app is set to utilise the 7 new free Wi-Fi locations that have been installed on Yorke Peninsula, through a partnership between the South Australian Tourism Commission and Telstra.

The free Wi-Fi points on Yorke Peninsula can be found at Innes National Park, Minlaton, Moonta Bay, Port Broughton, Port Victoria, Port Vincent, Wallaroo Esplanade.

The launch of the app responds to recent consumer research under the ‘Regional Visitor Strategy’, which identified the desire for greater digital accessibility of visitor information in the region.

The Manager of Yorke Peninsula Tourism, Deb Clarke has stated ‘That Yorke Peninsula Tourism are very proud to be innovators in this space.’

The Yorke Peninsula website with its app functionality is available here.
