Please watch out for our many wallabies as you drive, especially early morning and late afternoon. We would hate you to encounter our wildlife too closely.

Communications

The ONLY mobile phone network on the island is Telstra Next G. For phone access make sure you have a suitable phone with a SIM from a carrier that uses this network. The quality of coverage varies depending on the location.
To help provide a good signal with usable data speeds during your stay the cottages are fitted with a smart repeater system.
