What emergency phone numbers work in Australia?

Hopefully you will never need to use it, but its worth knowing just in case.

000 – Triple Zero is the number that we all know to call in case of an emergency but do you know what number to call from your mobile should you not have reception?

112 – Dialled from a mobile phone where your provider has no reception will connect to any available network.

112 – Does not need a SIM.

112 – Dialled on your mobile will reach 000.

911 – This number is diverted to 000 in Australia due to many US shows quoting this number.

So as not to confuse a child – 911 now converts to our 000 when dialled and overcomes any problems with children dialling it as a result of watching American shows.
