    yeah my parents house there used to be essentially no coverage .... but there were a couple of spots where if you were lucky you might get a bar (with Telstra .. Optus virgin no chance)

    texts would regularly come through though. Soemtimes took a while, but you would get them

    Sounds perfect to me! I'm off to Bali next week for a week with girlfriends and no mobile. I'm leaving my 3 kids with people I trust (their dad and my parents ) so in event of emergency I know they will have it in hand. If things are really bad they can call the hotel to get hold of me. I can't wait for the break!

    Reassuring news - the owner advised those who are with Telstra can usually pick up some signal at the rear of the house 👍

    I'm with Optus, but I'll be able to be contactable on my friends phone

    Mostly...the directions to this place are, lets say 'challenging'. Hopefully I won't get lost, with no help from my Optus phone and all

    Take a screenshot (or 10) of the maps in the area. If you are totally lost with the maps you can always do old fashioned knock on the door of the forst house and plead for help.

    I've actually had a really proper look at the directions and maps and I'm now of the opinion that I *should* be okay.

    You can still use google maps with no coverage. Your phone won't be able to give you directions as that uses data but as long as you've got the directions written down you'll be able to look at the map and see where you are on it. And you can save the location of where you're going as a favourite, and save portions of maps to use offline in google maps so you can still see it when you don't have reception. I've done this when I've been overseas before without data
