Phone & web access


There is STD (or direct distance dialling) access by phone or fax to and from the Australian mainland at various hotels and the internet cafe (open during business hours).


A Telstra 2G GSM mobile phone service operates on the island, but there is currently no data service - however, there are various internet access opportunities. Global roaming for phone and text services is available for carriers with roaming agreements in place with Telstra - check with your provider.


Send emails and share your holiday pics at the internet cafe at the Visitor Information Centre, or pick up a prepaid voucher for the wifi hotspots located in the township areas. Many hotels and self contained units also offer internet access to their guests so you can let family know you arrived safely, and share your pics with friends.
