Is your phone asking for an unlock code when you put in an Australian sim or is it just not connecting or what? Can you give more details please? Which phone do you have and which carrier in Australia did you opt for?

Usually, all phone are locked unless you unlocked it or it's a Nexus phone!

If the phone's radio frequencies are not compatible down under, no amount of SIM swapping or unlocking is going to help you.
