Buying a SIM card in Australia

Local SIM Cards: Currently, there are three major mobile phone providers in Australia: Telstra, Optus and Vodafone.

SIM card activation is mostly done online through the website of the operator. There you have to fill in your personal data before the SIM card will activate. Usually, a passport and any Australian address (like your accommodation) is sufficient.

To buy a sim card in Australia, you can visit the official websites of the mobile operators or visit their physical stores. Alternatively, you can also purchase sim cards at airports or electronic stores. It is important to note that you may need to provide proof of identity to purchase a sim card in Australia.

The average price for a sim card in Australia ranges from $10 to $30, depending on the operator and the plan you choose. Most of the operators offer prepaid plans that allow you to pay for what you use, and you can also choose from a variety of postpaid plans with different data allowances and calling minutes.

The major brands like Telstra, Optus, Vodafone or resellers like amaysim or Lycamobile are sold in kiosks, newspaper stands, fuel stations, major supermarkets and other stores all over the country.
