We all need WiFi while travelling these days. Luckily, towns across Australia are increasingly offering visitors public free WiFi, and Noosa is no exception. We’ve listed the best public spots to check your emails, catch up with friends on Facebook or book your next connection. Scroll down for a list of Noosa hostels that offer free WiFi.
Public free WiFi in Noosa
Noosa Junction free WiFi access
The free WiFi network at Noosa Junction was set up by the local businesses. A smart move, as it certainly attracts people to the busy shopping precinct. All Noosa hostels offer free bus transfers to Noosa Junction and there’s lots of cafes and restaurants where you can grab a seat and have a drink while you check your emails. It’s also around the corner from Drop Bear HQ, so it’s your last chance to use free WiFi before heading to Fraser Island.
Noosa Civic Shopping Centre free WiFi
It’s a bit of a pain to get to, but if you happen to have a car and are headed to Noosa Civic for some shopping, you can use the free WiFi there, too.
Free WiFi at Noosa libraries
Noosaville and Cooroy Libraries both have free WiFi and you can book a computer to use if you don’t have your own.
Free WiFi beyond Noosa
If you’re travelling on from Noosa, there’s also free public WiFi in other parts of the Sunshine Coast.
Hostels with free WiFi in Noosa
In our experience, Flashpackers Noosa has the best free WiFi out of all the Noosa backpackers. It usually works a treat all day round and even in most of the bedrooms.
Dolphins Beach House also has good free WiFi, but it is mainly accessible from the courtyard, near the reception. The WiFi signal doesn’t reach most of the rooms and the connection can be a bit wonky at peak times, but if you just want to check your emails and go online, it’s good enough.
Noosa Backpackers Resort also has free WiFi, with similar intermittent problems. There’s public computers available, but they are not free.
Halse Lodge Noosa is a YHA and as such does not offer free WiFi. You can purchase an internet pass.
