The telephone mobile network coverage at Charlotte Pass Village remains limited. In January 2019 Telstra installed a 4G "Small Cell" to enable telstra users with sufficiently new handsets to have coverage, whereas previously there was nil coverage for Telstra customers. To use the 4G "Small Cell" it is necassary to "enable HD Calling" in the "Settings", "Connections" menu of your mobile phone. Only more recent phones have this capability. Third party Telstra nextwork users (e.g. Aldi, Kogan, Woolworths) cannot access the network on this cell.
There is one landline telephone available for use within the lodge. This phone is for brief calls only as it provides a critical link for people such as family members, emergency services and the lodge booking officer to call in on essential business. This phone was changed from a pay phone to general free to use phone in March 2019. It is blocked from international call use. The number for this phone is 02 6457 5043.
There is limited free to access WiFi for guests of the lodge. Credentials for access are provided with the room allocation information email.
There are 2 High Chairs in each wing.
