Anyone looking for free wifi in Melbourne? I’ve put together a list of some of the places I’ve found that are worth a visit.
State Library :: 328 Swanston St – Probably your best option for free wifi in the city, the state library (corner of Swanston and Latrobe St) offers endless free wifi without having to buy a coffee every half-hour. The connection is good, although not super-fast.
Mag Nation :: 88 Elizabeth St – This cool magazine store is worth a visit. Grab yourself a coffee and head upstairs for best results. Bring your own headphones though – the music they play is a little hit and miss.
Horse Bazaar :: 397 Little Lonsdale Street – The Horse Bazaar is another top option. It’s a great little bar with a good connection.
Joe’s Garage :: 366 Brunswick St (Fitzroy) – Your best bet for free wifi in Fitzroy.
Food Inc :: 360 Elizabeth St – Good wifi here – The password to get on was 17DD1BA378 when I visited.
Bungalow 8 :: 389 Brunswick St – Scored low on ambiance and high on bogan count the night I was there, but the connection was good.
There’s also free wifi in both Australia on Collin’s and Melbourne Central’s foodcourt. I’d prefer to nail my leg to the table than hang out in a food court though. Coincidentally, the connection isn’t all that flash either.
If anyone has any other places to add to this list, please let me know via comments.
