We had mobile phone reception but it was patchy - and that was with an external aerial. Very close by (track beside ablution block) is the track to the old town of Dalrymple that has now gone but precedes Townsville and Charters Towers. Nice swimming here on the Burdekin River. Darymple was a reasonably large gold mining town until it was washed away in a flood and never rebuilt. Still some ruins and graves there.
