The Aussie equivalent of 555-1234
You’ve probably watched an American TV show or two and heard phone numbers prefixed with “555” - this is the standard American prefix for numbers that are supposed to be fictional. Turns out that there’s an Australian equivalent. I stumbled across the official ACMA guide to fictional numbers on Daniel Bowen’s blog. If you want your very own fictional number, you can give out 7010-xxxx - this works for every Australian area code.
