3DS XL region free?

Just some clarification... I've been reading around and apparently the 3ds xl is region free. Coming from a noob, does that mean I can, for example, play games from USA on a 3ds xl from AUS?

Basically, I'm looking to buy a 3ds xl in Australia but might buy games from North America.

Sadly no, but the DS games still are.

It's not? That's disappointing. Some forums said it was...

If the games are region free, does that mean they can be played on any 3ds xl?

All 3DS games are region locked.
Most DS games will work on any 3DS system though.
