The internationally recognised GSM mobile emergency number 112 will also work for emergency calls originating from mobile phones.
Australia uses the free call prefix of 1800 for calls from fixed line telephones.
Calls to 1800 numbers may incur a charge when made from mobile phones.
These types of telephone numbers are not accessible from outside Australia.
The 190X prefix is for premium rate services such as recorded information, competition lines, adult chat lines, psychics etc.
These types of calls usually incur very high rates.
Area codes only apply for fixed lines and are not required for mobile phones.
There are also other IDD codes for special purposes, such as 0018, a Telstra product for charging in half-hour blocks and 0014, a Primus product for discounted rates.
For details on IDD codes for other countries refer to the International Dialling Codes page.
000 is the emergency telephone number in Australia for access to Ambulance, Fire and Police emergency services.
The area code is not required when calling locally.
Australia's mobile numbers use ten digits which all begin with 04, followed by two digits (formerly a mobile network code), and the subscriber's six digit number, always dialled in full.
