Traveling to Australia for a month. Can I use an Australian SIM Card? Does using an Australian SIM Card effect my Koodo account?

Sure you can. I did when I was in Australia. Just make sure you check that your phone is unlocked first. Put in a Rogers or Bell sim in the phone to see if it works.
This should help you out

If you take your koodo sim out, nothing will change on your Koodo account. I usually tape the sim to the inside of a small ziplock bag so I dont lose the koodo sim when I travel

Yes if your phone is unlocked. You can put your Koodo account on seasonal hold. You'll have to pick a new current plan when coming back so if you have a good plan now it might not be worth it.

@Lefty58 it looks like the Australian providers use either 850MHz + 2100MHz or 900MHz + 2100MHz 3G frequencies, so as long as your phone supports all 3 of those and is unlocked, you should be fine. 4G support looks a bit more varied. You may want to check your phone on https://www.willmyphonework.net. Pick your brand and model, then Australia, and ALL to see the full list.
Thanks to all who responded. Your information was a big help for my upcoming trip!

@Lefty58 have a great time! If you're looking for souvenir ideas, I'd love a baby Koala. Just make sure to poke plenty of air holes in the box and leave him or her a nice dish of water. k thx! 😉
