Avoid Additional Airport Costs and Stay Connected During Your Travels With Our Guide to Free Airport Wi-Fi

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - Jun 26, 2012) -  Some airports offer Wi-Fi -- that all important on-the-go Internet connection -- free of charge while others charge up to AU$3 per hour and more., the online leader in deals publishing, helps travellers bypass the need to pay more with its guide to free airport Wi-Fi in Australia and New Zealand.

"Staying connected is a priority for most people these days whether they travel for business or pleasure," says Oonagh Shiel, site editor for

"While travellers may not always have a choice of what airport or terminal they travel from, if the option is available to avoid additional costs and stay online for free, it can make all the difference. Knowing which airports or even where in an airport they can log on without paying up can be key when comes to planning travel," adds Shiel.

Below we outline the best departure airports to stay connected free of charge:


  • Gold Coast: Given that Wi-Fi is entirely free throughout, this comes in as our best airport for staying connected while on the move

  • Adelaide: Wi-Fi is free throughout Terminal 1

  • Darwin: Wi-Fi is free on the first floor of the terminal

  • Sydney: Wi-Fi is free in the international terminal, T1 and the domestic terminal, T2, but it's not available after customs or even at the gate while waiting to board


  • Wellington: We're naming this best departure point for New Zealand when it comes to free access because Wi-Fi is free throughout the entire airport

  • Dunedin: Free Wi-Fi access is currently being trialled throughout the airport with the password available at all retail and food outlets around the terminal

  • Queenstown: Free access is available for one hour within each four-hour period per user, so provided you only go in once for an hour every four hours, your connect remains free of charge!
