If there are diverse kinds of knowledge and ways of knowing place, then we need to learn to value the different ways each of us sees a single place that is significant, but differently so, for each perspective.

Kangaroo Island holidays « Previous | |Next »
April 19, 2007

We are off for a 5 days holiday on Kangaroo Island. We will be staying in the heritage lighthouse accommodation in the island's national parks.

Internet access is difficult, as this is a remote region. True, Kangaroo Island is a high tourism site with strong international traffic. Though we are staying in national park lighthouse cottages these have no phones or internet access. I was hoping for island-wide wireless coverage---ie., Kangaroo Island would have gone digital given its high tourist profile. It is not so.

Not even a mobile phone works apart from the Telstra network--- and that is maybe.

So it looks like I am limited to the internet cafes in the two main towns of the island --Kingscote and Penneshaw ---if I want to post images from the digital camera. More than likely this will happen when when we are staying at Cape Willoughby, rather than the more remote Flinders Chase in the south west of the island.
