Free Wi-Fi hotspots in Australia

A full list of all free Wi-Fi hotspots throughout Australia

Compared to the US and Europe, Australia doesn't have an abundance of free Wi-Fi hotspots. A Wi-Fi hotspot is a place or location that offers Internet access over a wireless network — and free hotspots can be found throughout most of North and South America, Europe and Asia. They're convenient when you want to check your e-mail over a latte, or check out GoodGearGuide.com.au while you're travelling.

Popular locations for Wi-Fi hotspots include coffee shops, libraries, restaurants, shopping centres and hotels.

Australian Web site Free Wi-Fi provides a list of free Wi-Fi hotspots throughout Australia, and claims to be "Australia's premier directory of wireless Internet hotspots."

In addition to listing free Wi-Fi hotspots, the website includes a list of paid Wi-Fi hotspots — handy if you urgently require Internet access.

Though the price and speed of mobile broadband continue to improve, we found this site a handy tool to stay connected.

Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
