You can actually get the Vodafone promotion. Will you be in CBD city area? or mixture of city plus outskirts?

For calls back to SIngapore, I would recommend you install the app pfingo and for the usage u can consider Optus latest promotion, iPad Pre-Paid Micro SIM Starter Kit @ AUD $15. It consist of 3gb of data
