You have given yourself plenty of time to avail yourself of the free unlock that is available to Post-Paid iPhone customers (Not Including Pre-Paid iPhone 3GS).

 

Have a read of http://exchange.telstra.com.au/2012/05/03/how-to-use-your-iphone-overseas/ for details on how to get the ball rolling

Leaving your phone at home in Australia when you travel abroad saves on mobile usage charges even more.
