Telephone numbers in Australia

Here are some of the important information on telephone numbers in Australia vs Taiwan:
AustraliaTaiwan
Country code61886
Main international prefix0011002
Mobile prefix0409
Capital area code02 (NSW, ACT)02 (Taipei)
Emergency000119

It's interesting to note that the telephone numbers around the capital areas for both countries look very similar -- both are of the form 02-1234-5678.

It was also surprising to learn the international dialing access prefix (0011) is so close to the emergency number (000) -- wouldn't this cause some people (such as international visitors) to dial emergency accidentally? ^^||
