Internet content filters
The National Filter Scheme is making free internet content filters available via the NetAlert site. There is a filter comparison table outlining the features of the 3 filters on offer.
The Australian Government has undertaken a detailed assessment process to provide Australian households with access to the best available filters through the National Filter Scheme.
The Australian Government does not endorse any particular online content filter. You should read all information, instructions and advice on online content filters carefully. — NetAlert 
Two filters are offered;
1. Optenet Web Filter PC 9.6 (PC only)
2. Safe Eyes (PC and Mac versions)
Do I have to pay for the Family filter software?
No, you do not have to pay. The Australian Government has purchased this filter for you. All residents of Australia may install and use the filter without any restrictions, until 30 June 2010. — Optenet
