Lake Elphinstone is a natural lake within Nebo Shire in the Mackay region of Queensland. Located about 90km west of coastal Mackay, Lake Elphinstone is a family friendly (free) camping site which is popular for fishing, boating, bird watching and even water skiing. It’s a lovely relaxing spot where you are not overrun by pesky midges and mosquitos and even better, no crocodiles!
The good news for all visitors was that mobile coverage was available – the bad news was that you could only access it if you stood in the right place, on your left leg, with the wind blowing in the right direction. Complaints from campers increased, and the lack of signal was deemed a health and safety issue so the ISAAC Regional Council contacted telecommunications expert TAA Connect to come up with a solution.
