WiFi is available in most hotels, cafes, restaurants and a number of local authority venues including all of Australia’s public libraries and Visitor Information Centres. If you are not sure - ask, as it is not always advertised.
The speed of WiFi can range from good (particularly in the cities where there is fibre) to less reliable in more remote or rural areas, where the technology is older.
So if you are looking for flexibility and speed the cellular data networks provide a better, faster service, so you can stay connected and get all those great photos home to your loved ones.
Consider a Calling Card
If your mobile phone is locked to a network back home, or you don't wish to purchase a local SIM card, you can buy a calling card for use within Australia's public phone network. Calling cards can be used to ring international countries for a specified amount of time and are generally very cost effective.
Note: Most public phones in Australia don’t take cash. A credit card or calling card is generally necessary to make a call from a public phone.
