Where are you flying to? Australian airports are generally very well signposted, and it's not at all a problem to get from there to the city, but I can probably also give you more detailed instructions. Also, do you already have a hostel booked? Depending on where that's located, it can make a bit of difference in some cities for which form of transport is the easiest for getting there...

Don't be scared. Australia is very easy to travel as it is both really safe & the locals are really helpful. Just don't be afraid to ask us for help if you need it. I've traveled all over it multiple times.
