If you would like to make direct contact with the Homestead once on the water, or have an inquiry before leaving port,  please use the information below:

Marine Radio Channel: Ch:73 for a chat    (Channel 10  was the Island communication channel, but has recently been commandeered by Hay Point Vessel loading Terminal . We no longer use that channel so as not to interfere with the Coal Loading Terminal Shipping communications) Scanning: 16, 73, 80, 81 and 83 (recently installed repeater station on Percy Island for Coastguard Thirsty Sound to contact those further afield than ch:81)

Telephone and Internet : Communication lines usually drop out between Shoalwater Bay Area and Dent/Curlew Islands. Once at Middle Percy Island the Telephone and Internet communications are available from the higher points, but only if you have a Telstra communication system. The Homestead veranda is a comfortable place to make contact with your loved ones and business, while sipping a cool lime and honey drink to refresh after the walk up here! So remember to bring your Telstra mobile phone with you for those important communications.

Skype: is available from my computer (without video link) if your contact has SKYPE also OR you can go into your own account on my computer.
