What are 13/ 1300 and 1800 fax numbers?

In Australia, 13, 1300 and 1800 are considered toll free fax numbers and often used as a business fax number to provide customers with a cost effective fax option when sending locally within Australia.  If you need to send a fax to a 13/1300 or 1800 number, this could be the main fax number for the business or organisation. It’s best practice to include a fax coversheet when sending a fax to Australia to ensure it reaches the correct department.
