Who is your current provider in the US because not all of them are GSM. AT&T and T-mobil are and one like Verizon is not. As far as I know only GSM phones will work in Australia.
But if yours is then swapping the current card out for the contiki one should work fine if the phone isn’t locked as you said (my bet is that the Iphone and most blackberries are unfortunately).
You might find it easier to find a store and get a pre-paid Aussie cell phone from Telestra, Vodafone or Optus and this should be quite cheap.
You could contact your current provider and see what deals they offer on international charges and service etc.
Im not sure about calling back to the US etc but best idea if you want to keep in contact with Australians would be to check that your phone is not locked and then buy a sim card here in australia.
If your phone is locked then you can pick up new (but extrememly old phones) for under one hundred dollars with someone like telstra in australia which u could use just while on holiday and that way it doesnt matter much if u lose it either
