JA, I live in those parts to which you refer (well, very near). At my place near Judbury TAS, it is 0.15 with SQM of 21.95. I can't even see any light-dome from Hobart (40 km away) due to the blocking mountains. Nothing at all in the southern or western skies except endless wilderness and ocean. It'll do.

Actual residence:
SQM 18.64
Brightness 3.79
Artificial Brightness 3620
Bortle Class 7
Radiance 32.29

Moving to a new house soon:

SQM 19,38
Brightness 1.91
Artificial Brightness 1740
Bortle Class 6
Radiance 7.66

Even if it is not accurate, i think the new house will be fun....
