    You just need to buy the right power converter. Radio Shack will have what you need.

    Look at the power brick and see if the input voltage has a range of like 100 - 240 volts. If it does then you only need the correct adapter to make the plug fit in the receptacles in Australia. I believe they are called V-shape flat, whereas your power brick is parallel flat. But do a Google search to be sure.

    If your power brick does not have that range then you will also need a transformer to reduce the 240 volts in Australia to the 110/120 that we use here in the USA.
