Whitsundays isolated due to mobile outages


Telstra is working rapidly to fix a service issue which has left many Whitsunday customers without mobile or landline services and unable to call triple zero.

Daydream Island, Hayman Island, Hamilton Island, and Shute Harbour have all been affected by the power issue.

A Telstra spokesperson says some may be unable to contact Triple Zero until the problem is resolved.

"As a result residents located in Shute Harbour, Hayman Island, and Hamilton Island may be isolated and unable to contact triple zero," the spokesperson says.

A technician and electrician are attending sites as a priority to restore services.
