  • Whitehouse Hotel Restaurant, Tower St. M-Sa Lunch 12-2PM, Dinner 6PM-8AM. Some say this place is trying too hard. Maybe, but it does have the longest and most diverse menu in town. Mains $22-27.  edit


Self catering[edit]

  • Coles Express, Cnr Rochester and Tower St, +61 8 9037 6011. 5AM-8PM daily. The range isn't much wider than milk, canned goods, snacks and toiletries but it might suffice if you really need something.  edit

Contact[edit]

Phone[edit]

Mobile phone coverage is limited to the Telstra 3G network, and only within town. The signal becomes variable to non-existent the further away you get. Coverage maps show it's possible to get a signal with an external antenna further out of town, but you should not rely on it. Other networks aren't available in Menzies.

A satellite phone would be useful to have in an emergency if you intend to spend an extended amount of time off the beaten track.

Internet[edit]

Mobile internet on the Telstra 3G network has the same coverage as the phones do.

Get out[edit]
