using mobile in Australia

Hi, I'm visiting Australia in September. I am flying alone and therefore would like to text or ring family to let them know I am safe. I will be staying with my daughter so I know I will be able to use WiFi eventually. How do I go about setting up my mobile for the trip? What do I do when I arrive? This is only the 2nd time I have left the UK in 30 years and last time was Europe. I had a nightmare sorting my mobile in Europe. Also does anyone have any idea what the charges are as I presume they aren't covered by my monthly allowances. Can I top up beforehand? 

Thank you in advance.

Re: using mobile in Australia

Full help and information about costs can be found at https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-media-roaming-hub

However, using a Virgin Mobile in Australia will incur some high charges depending on your usage. There is no option to top up your account as such as the charges would be the same as if you paid them afterwards on your monthly bill.
