The Internet in Paradise, Airlie Beach
All the internet providers, email services, and internet cafes around
Internet Cafes and Web Access
Just what backpackers and visitors are seeking for that email to home. As at 2007, most backpacker places and many resorts have some sort of internet facility. Access of some sort is now common, and often cheap. Big change from 8 years ago when we first arrived. Ask at reception or when making a booking.
