Internet access at Finlay Park
There are heaps of better things to do at Finlay Park than spend time on the internet. But we do realise that there are time when you just cannot get away. So we have worked with Zenbu and Lightwire to provide internet access at Finlay Park. Internet access is available in and around the main dining room, extending into the program room.

Cell Phone Coverage
Vodafone cellphone coverage is very limited at Finlay Park Camp. There is marginal coverage at the chapel and the main gate. Please be aware of this limitation if you are bringing a Vodafone cellphone to camp. Spark and 2degrees have full cellphone coverage through camp
Why don't you provide internet access for campers?
One of the major advantages of a camp experience that Finlay Park provides is the opportunity to participate in activities that campers (and adults) don’t have access to on a daily basis. From the challenges of the activities, sharing meals with other campers, sleeping in a different place and just hanging out. Its all about the experience. We know it is exciting and campers want to post to facebook and tweet about the day but now is not the time. It is time to live in the moment. Enjoy the experience. Post the updates when you get home.
Why is the amount of data limited?
Being in a rural location the internet is still relativity expensive and limited in speed. To help provide an acceptable experience for all there are limits on the amount of data that can be used. Each voucher will specify how much data can be used for that voucher. And anyway, what are you doing on the internet? Get out there and enjoy the Finlay Park experience.
What is a Megabyte?
I am trying to login using an access code that I obtained somewhere else but it isn't working. Why?
An access code received from staff at a Zenbu wireless zone may only be used at the zone(s) for which it is valid. You will be unable to login using an access code obtained from a zone operator at any other Zenbu wireless zones. Contact Finlay Park Staff for an access code valid at Finlay Park.
