Our primary source for this data is the Australia sub-page on The embedded map links to the relevant pages so you can find out pricing and resources. (Hackerspaces typically charge a membership fee, though some will allow casual usage.)

Click on a button to highlight details of a specific space. (If we’ve missed one, let us know and we’ll add it. Note that we’re only covering active hackerspaces, not developing groups, in this post.)
