Don't know,

haven't been to either.

google the bowling club, that will give you a contact number to ring them.

If there is it could be patchy. LHI has no mobile phones and I've always found the net to be patchy as well as TV coverage of Digital to be hit and miss

Just had a thought, the other possible place would be The Anchorage (formerly known as Humpty Micks)

TV coverage on the island seems to be limited to free to air satellite - they are right on the edge for coverage from the rural heart of Australia. Felt strange seeing ads for Alice Springs & Longreach.

Didn't see any sign of Foxtel etc.

Where we stayed Internet was dial-up speeds.

No pubs on LHI but the closest thing is the bowling club where you can mix socially & also coment on the cricket/footy etc on the big screen or discuss just about anything with the friendly, laid back locals or other visitors such as yourself. Also dinner is available several times a week. The golf club is also an option but less frequent.
