History of Sydney Dialing Codes

The area code for Sydney, Australia, is "02". It's one of the most recognizable area codes in the country and dates back to the early days of Australia's telephone system. Within the "02" phone code, telephone numbers typically consist of eight digits following the area code. These numbers are used for landline telephones, businesses, residences, and government offices located in the capital city of New South Wales and its surrounding areas.


Telephone lines connecting major cities in Australia began with Sydney and Melbourne in 1907. Melbourne and Adelaide were connected by 1914. However, Sydney and Brisbane had to wait until 1923 for their connection, and Perth and Adelaide weren't linked until 1930.


Calls were limited to three minutes each. During the day, the rate was 5 shillings and 8 pence for three minutes, while at night, it was 2 shillings and 10 pence for the same duration. Initially, there was a discount for the second three minutes, but by 1929, this was replaced with a flat rate for every three minutes.
