Australia, 1950s: placing a long-distance phone call

Where: real life Australia

When: mid 1950s

Terms searched: none.  No idea where to start

Question:
       I'm at a fairly modern facility in Brisbane, calling a similar facility in Melbourne.
       Is there any chance I can dial the call directly, or will I have to go through an operator? (Possibly several.)
