Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) No, you need a remote receiver that is rated for 230 volts and 50 hertz.

2) Australia voltages are 230 volts and the frequency is 50 hertz.

United States voltage for ceiling fans is 120 volts and 60 hertz for those fan components used in the US.
