It's a good idea to bring earplugs if you are sensitive to the sound of birds at dawn.
This is a place to have a real break from tv, internet and mobile phone.
Mobile internet and phone coverage
Is not reliable. Telstra or BOOST work best. Vodaphone is worst.
There are two delightful,child- friendly libraries within a 15 min drive. Both have excellent, fast wifi and free visitor membership for borrowing.
Guests can borrow books and if you let Janine know, she will return them for you.
For people coming from overseas , Janine recommends 'boost' pay as you go mobile (find on the internet) for a short term phone connection for very reasonable cost and best access.
