    Default Free wifi in sydney

    Can anyone give us a heads up where wifi is available in downtown Sydney. We're on our way up there for a week tomorrow.
    Cheers KJ.

    Easiest to remember is that there is free (fairly slow) wi-fi at any McDonalds, and they're easy to find everywhere around the city.

    Cheers for that. Can't say I'd go for the food.

    Agreed. Another option with better food is that a good number of Sydney cafes offer free internet as well. Need to keep an eye out for the signs a bit (uConnect/Unwired is one) and there is some in LG/QVB.

    Any Apple Store. When I'm in Sydney I like to go to the flagship store on the corner of George and King and go up to level 2 and sit on the bench near the Genius Bar, at least the couple of times I've been there they haven't minded.
    Good. Fast. Cheap. Pick two...
