Regex Apex Code for Australia and New Zealand phone number

Hi All,
Can anyone help in writing the regex code for apex and not for validation rule.
My output should be  example: +61918273645 0r +64918273645.
list<string>updatedPhoneNumbers = new list<string>();
        String phoneRegex = '{+61}\d{9}[0-9]'; //Australia
        String phoneRege = '{+64}\d{9}[0-9]'; // New Zealand
        String phoneNumber = '';
        list<string>updatedPhoneNu = participantPhone;
        for(string str : updatedPhoneNu){
            phoneNumber= str ;
            Pattern PhonePattern = Pattern.compile(phoneRegex);
            Matcher EmailMatcher = PhonePattern.matcher(phoneNumber);
            else {
                Pattern PhonePattern1 = Pattern.compile(phoneRegex);
                Matcher EmailMatcher1 = PhonePattern.matcher(phoneNumber);

Is it the same error still?

Line: 2, Column: 29
Illegal string literal: Invalid string literal '{+61}\d{9}[0-9]'. Illegal character sequence \d' in string literal.

I tried the code snippet in my dev console and the error vanished after making said changes.  Can you share reproducible code snippet that I can try on my org to be able to suggest better?Thanks

Hi Swetha,
sorry for the late reply.
I'm getting error as Invalid regex: Illegal repetition
if I use the above formula.
this is the present code I'm using '{+64}\\d{9}[0-9]'
I need to get output as +64876789435

Hi Swetha its working for this code.
I'm not sure how but I got this from somewhere -  '^[+]61\\d{9}$'
