Well, I'm a pom over here and brought over all of my kit. I just cut
off the plugs of my multi-adapters and put aussie plugs on and
You shouldn't experience any problems with regards to power.
The modem on the other hand maybe a bit more tricky. I had to pick up a
new modem on arrival because mine didn't seem to work properly. I could
get it to blind dial, but it wouldn't detect the dial tones etc (YMMV).
So, pick up a standard power convertor and a phone convertor kit and
give it a go. If you run into any problems while you are there, drop me

Imagine working in a secure environment and finding the string
