    I thought that I was making a hotel booking for free through Booking.com as I have always done this before. However, it turns out that this one is not for free and if I don't show I have to pay the full amount of $340.

    This was just 5 days ago. Under Australian Consumer Law, is there any sort of cooling off period for online purchases?

    There is no blanket cooling off period for online purchases. Online hotel booking sites set out the applicable terms and fees for each room and state whether they are cancellable or refundable.
