Yes, it is Australian electric plug. It is a really good blanket. Multiple heat settings and multiple timer settings options as well. Heats up super fast. Very soft to touch. Long cord reaches far but my room is extra long so I bought extension lead from Bunnings for a few dollars. The blanket heats up on both sides simultaneously. I use it for myself only but two people can fit under it if necessary- however best to refer to size guide to see if this is size is good for you. I actually bought 2 different colours. We love both of them.
