Digital Detox Time

Although the thought of not being “connected” may strike fear into some, there are a few of us that would love the opportunity to break free from tweets, hashtags and emoji’s. Your working holiday could provide you with just that opportunity.

If you have travelled in any rural location in Australia then you will know that Wi-Fi and phone connection can be patchy at best. Apparently the Aussie telco’s don’t realise that it is 2019 and  compared to Europe we are sadly lacking in the digital department.. One of the downsides of being on the other side of the world we guess.

But, for those of you who are brave enough to undertake a digital detox, here are a few places that have rubbish (or no) connectivity, but are pretty awesome on other ways…

Arkaba Station, South Australia

Committed to conservation and improving the lives of it’s over 5, 000, 000 native inhabitants this stunning bushland provides a mountain habitat for the wildlife residents. Plus, it’s not a bad place for humans either… It proudly states that it has no Wifi, telephones, televisions or mini bars.

So, if sober exclusion is what you are looking for, head to Flinders Ranges in South Australia.

Corinna, Tasmania

Located in the Western wilderness of Australia, where the rainforest meets the coast this remote location will allow your soul to breathe, relax while you get back to nature. This remote mining town is the ideal location to unwind, indulge in bushwalks and reflect on the crystal clear water.

Your devices will be useless, but your time spent here will not disappoint.

West MacDonnell National Park, Northern Territory

Mobile coverage is extremely limited, but your mind will be on the landscape and not the latest releases on Netflix. You may be able to find one bar when hanging off one of the ridges, but the chances are Orminston Gorge will take your breath away, so Snapchat will be the last thing on your mind.
