First telephone call between Jervis Bay and Tasmania

April 1936.
In an age where we take the simple act of making a telephone call for granted,  it's hard to imagine a time without this every day convenience.

The first telephone call was made between Jervis bay and Tasmania since the new cables had been laid was made by an Officer of the H.M.A.S Yarra. He was quite surprised at the clearness of the telephone saying, "It seemed as though he was ringing locally"
