You can buy them online. Many of those 24 hour convennience stores sell them in the inner city areas. Australia Post shops sell them.

As Unlcefey says, there are tons of them online - you just need to wade through all the sites or try to find a site that does comparisons to work out which one would be best for you.

yes, the convenience stores sell them.

take a few minutes to scan the posters in the front of the store detailing the prices/conditions etc. some are very cheap/minute but charge a connection fee (say $0.20/call) whilst others are more expensive/minute but there is no connection fee.

we've used cards with no connection fees and about $0.04/minute to USA and Canada.

That's a good rate June - did you get those from a Newsagent or a convenience store in Sydney ?
