Hi Ron, I'm sure I have already posted a reply to your question ... possibly on another forum though ... but the build year of your car is important (not shown on your sig), as if you have a pre- '96 or '97 model, you may have an analogue or CDMA phone in which case you are out of luck. However any phone post '98 should be a GSM phone and current SIM cards will work on either the 2G or 3G networks. I had a '99 with a Nokia 3310 phone and it worked fine with the current SIM.

Out in the donga in Mudgee, Telstra is probably the only network that will give you coverage.
