Australia Dialing Codes

& International Prefix – 0011

Fun Facts: For about 50,000 years before the first British settlement in the late 18th century, Australia was inhabited by indigenous Australians, who spoke languages classifiable into roughly 250 groups.

Note: Adding the + sign when dialing automatically adds the international Prefix, meaning you don’t need to remember the international prefix: So its +44 for UK or +353 for Ireland from a mobile device rather than the alternative 0044 or 00353 that might be easier to use from a Fixed Line
