The International Subscriber Dialing code (or the country calling code) for Australia is 61.

Start by dialing the following sequence of numbers:
International Call Prefix 011
Country Calling Code 61
Area Code For the call recipient
Thier Number

So, the phone number should look like this:
011 61 area code + their number

It will not cost you additionally, since the Koodo plans include international text messages, If you have one of the new plans it is unlimited and within Canada you can text any country you want...
