Australia and UK/Europe all use 220 volts, so no converter is needed.

However, you will need two kinds of adaptor as UK and France have different sockets. You need one so an Australian plug can use a UK socket, and one so an Australian plug can use a European socket. These adaptors are readily available around Sydney.

Dubai uses the same sockets as UK.
