Question Singapore Transit

Hi All,

I am transiting in Singapore for 20 hours on my way to India from Australia.
I have a Indian passport and was wondering if I require to get a visa from Australia to step out of the transit area in Singapore and explore the city.
Will I be eligible for the Visa Free Transit Facility and how easy or difficult is it to get this..
Please advise.. I dont want to be stranded on the airport for 20 hours..
