Better mobile reception down North Stradbroke's Island Main Beach was the news from a visit by Energy Minister Angus Taylor.
Bowman MP Andrew Laming said a small cell satellite would be located at Blue Lake and would enable mobile coverage in case of emergencies on Main Beach and help tourists and residents get better reception at the southern end of the island.
He said the announcement was related to the black spot tower that would serve Amity and Point Lookout and will be installed this year.
Mr Laming said about 60 locals met Mr Taylor, raising energy, emissions, power bills and jobs as their key concerns.
"There was plenty of interest in the tourism and safety benefits of the new mobile coverage also," he said.
"Emergency services and Redland City Council will be delighted that mobile reception will extend this far south.
"From ordering Uber Eats to reporting emergencies, this changes the tourism experience on the island."
Mr Laming said the meeting also covered environmental challenges of transforming the economy without hurting working families or seeing power blackouts.
He said the Coalition's Paris commitments were spot-on and on-track.
"We will meet our international obligations in a canter, then be a credible partner in the next round of climate talks. This contrasts with Labor's 50 per cent renewable energy targets which can only lead to closures, job losses and misery.
"Many Redlanders are concerned with power prices and I am proud of our track record of meeting our international obligations without having to slash jobs, close down industries and decrease wages.
In April last year, the government announced that mobile phone coverage was set to improve at Russell and North Stradbroke islands with two extra mobile base stations to be built.
