Can you help me with plan to move to Macleay Island ?

Hi all my name is John and i have few questions about Macleay Island

I was planning to buy Land for 20-30k and to bring foldable prefab home aprox 40m2...
I wanted to ask you guys about this things:

1. I need around 8k for septic system right ?
2. Is connection to the house included with septic system, if not how much aprox ?
3. Is there Electricity on Island ? If yes how much would it cost (aprox) to connect it from the street ? (because prefab home got all internal installations already)
4. Is there water system ? If yes how much would it cost (aprox) to connect it to the house ? If not what options do i have ? and How much should i expect to pay for it ?
5. I was thinking to get this house on the Macleay : https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Expandable-Two-Bedroom-Folding-Granny-Flat-House-37sqm-Free-Upgrades-Best-Value/122846370792?hash=item1c9a36dbe8:g:JcQAAOSwUwFaAPmo

May i ask you how much does it cost to get all council approvals, etc for this one or for similar one ?
6. I saw few comment about camping/caravan on your own block... I just wondering if i bring this prefab home can i stay permanently there ?
7. Someone mentioned 2 year rule for Caravan/Container on your own land, is this true or ?
8. Garbage collection / Water tanks etc... How do you get rid of garbage if there is no garbage collection on island ? If there is no water system, that means that i need water tank or something on my property, so how much would it cost to install one and what are rates to get water weekly etc aprox ?

Thank you upfront :)

Testimonial:
“Matt is an insured uber driver. He has the taxi licence..
He is respectable and doesnt do anything wrong. You can pay cash or card which is great. Plus the best thing is its a clean and tidy car and he will get a car seat when required. The back seats even turn in to a booster seat. So for the quality of care and respect you get its amazing” -Russell Island Resident
