Hi, we are travelling to the Kimberleys next week, including the Gibb River Road. Due to the illness of a family member I would like to know how good mobile coverage is along this stretch, including the gorge sites along the way. Are there many public phones available? If so I guess a phone card is the way to go. We would be happy to pay for a mobile that receives good coverage but don't know how good the coverage actually is. Hoping you can help, love this website!
