The Digital Age is awesome, however at times seriously raises questions. Getting off the grid without flicking a switch, or disconnecting our intimate relationship we seem to have developed towards our digital devices, is becoming increasingly harder. Many of us screen surfing on the side, never really switching off, or more so increasing our isolation from actively engaging face to face dialogue with other human beings outside of cyber space.

Australian Pacific Lodges, owner operators of Mungumby Lodge made a seriously conscious decision from rather than promoting free Wifii, promote Wifii free, and become “The Australian Centre for Digital Detox”. Day to day we face near constant demands for our attention in a digital world. If we don’t let ourselves reboot, this can mean burn out, or we become inefficient. To reverse this position we need a good recharge and switching off plus indulging in nature simply does the trick.

Launching Mungumby Lodge’s new campaign switchoff(at) “we encourage customers to switch off their devices, thus switch on their holiday or break. We have witnessed this major transition from apologising about the lack of connectivity out here on the frontier to now realising our customers choose Mungumby Lodge to get off the grid and reconnect. A true break! Families playing board games or cards, couples laughter, meeting others, or chilling out alone, always at nature’s side. Although the Wifii might not work so well, nor your mobile, the connectivity out here is amazing, with mother nature and other human beings” advises the company’s director - Hamish Haslop.

In the past 26 years Mungumby Lodge has not had television nor in room telephones available, today, they also have no mobile reception. By removing device need plus email and Internet enables our customers to Explore | Discover | Switch Off as part of their digital detox. Feel at home, engage with nature and other humans, and likewise enjoy some of the earth’s best paddock to plate cuisine at Mungumby Lodge.

The corporate client get togethers love the easy to create captive audience. However advises Hamish “what is special to observe is the transition a family or couple can make by throwing their devices in their packs and getting on with having a break”. Clients come nationally and from all over the world looking to engage with nature. Once they get here they are cherish the freedom!
