The Consular Services Charter outlines the consular services and assistance that are provided by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. There will be circumstances in which their ability to provide consular support may be limited. These circumstances are outlined in the link.
The Australian Embassy in Abu Dhabi has consular responsibility for Australians in Abu Dhabi. The Australian Consulate-General in Dubai has consular responsibility for Australians in Dubai and the northern Emirates.
A list of lawyers who can represent you is available from:
• The website of the Australian Embassy and Consulate-General in the UAE

If you're arrested or jailed, the Australian Government will do what it can to help you under their Consular services charter, but they can't get you out of jail.
