Water is usually collected via rainwater tanks and dams. Electricity is produced by a combination of diesel generators or sustainable technologies like solar panels and wind turbines.

Telephone services to the island are provided via a microwave link. To connect the telephone, contact Telstra. There is a public telephone in front of the French Island General Store.

For Internet connections, talk to your neighbours about which service is most appropriate for your circumstances and location.
