    You need the cellular model to use a 3G sim.

    On the iPad 2 there is a SIM tray access on the side at the top left when holding the iPad in portrait orientation. It has a small round hole above it ( for the SIM tray remover pin). It is the same corner as the headphone jack.

    If it does not have this, then it is wifi only.

    I assumed from your description that you knew you had a wifi only model?

    I believe it should say so on the box. On the back, small sticker with the barcoded on it. On the top is the description. Mine says "iPad 2 Wi-Fi 3G 16GB Black". Mine is the wifi/cellular version.

    The wifi only will drop the 3G and just say Wi-Fi.

    Australia! Yes, most mobile providers have portable wifi/3G options, so shop around. Telstra is probably best for 4G, and the most reliable 3G, but if you're in a good metro area, you can check out both Vodafone and Optus options.

    These are good portable options, and you can usually share the wifi with a number of devices, if needed.

    If your just using it around the home, then hopefully you have a wifi modem with your home Internet you can connect to.
