Can you help us promote this event?

We'd appreciate your help in reaching the local community – especially any residents who don't spend time online to see this page. We have provided an information flyer in various languages which can be easily distributed. For example, displaying them in restaurants, shops, and community gathering places.


Free WiFi points

To make getting online easy and accessible, we're installing multiple FREE public WiFi points across Doveton. Some points will also have benches to charge your devices (wireless charging is available, but please bring your own cable for USB charging).

  • View all of our existing WiFi points across Casey on this interactive map. Please note: some sites are only accessible by specific users or visitors to that site, e.g. kindergartens.
     
  • View the WiFi points just in Doveton on the map below which is also available as a PDF file that you can save to your device or print for easy reference. As marked, some of the smart benches will only be ready for use in August.
