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.

    There are fictional number ranges for every AU area code, but they’re not all 7010-xxxx — it varies (see the page for details).

    Whoops, you’re right, 7010 does work all over. But some regions have the option of the rather US-like 5551-xxxx.
