THE historic town of Laidley is getting with the 21st century with the announcement that Lockyer Valley Regional Council has installed wifi facilities at Das Neumann Haus.

The move is part of the Laidley Futures initiative and provides free internet wifi access in the historic 19th century museum and associated Annie Cafe.

Lockyer Valley Mayor Steve Jones welcome the move saying two thirds of the population owned smartphones and this would be a useful service to the community.

"Council has identified this as something we've been lacking in the tourism and business sector for a while now," Cr Jones said.

"We want to make the region as attractive as possible to visitors."

Cr Jones said they also wanted to improve the access to information.

"The wifi initiative will not only provide greater access to internet services for visitors but will also add to the experience of shopping in Laidley for local residents."

The Gatton, Lockyer and Brisbane Valley Star is compiling a map of places in the Lockyer and Brisbane Valleys that provide free wifi services. 

If you know a place that provides this service, please let us know at news@gattonstar.com.au
