There is a list of drop-off points for the National Television and 
Computer Recycling Scheme at: http://recyclingnearyou.com.au/ewastescheme/

The list is not easy to read and could do with a better interface.

For more on the origins of the scheme and alternatives (such charities 
which refurbish old computers), see chapter 4 "Materials Use" in my 
e-book "ICT Sustainability: Assessment and Strategies for a Low Carbon 
Future": http://www.tomw.net.au/ict_sustainability/materials.shtml

ps: My on-line course "ICT Sustainability", starts at ANU mid February:
