I am planning to go to oz at the end of may for 3 months starting in sydney and travelling up the east coast to cairns (on the hop/off buses) trying to find out roughly how much money i'll need to take.... first time traveller so any advise would be great :0)

I found that I spent roughly $60 (AUD) per day in Australia (including hostels, food, transport and occasional activities/tours). If you move from one destination to the next more than once a week, or want to do activities pretty much everywhere, budget a bit more (~$75/day). If you intend never to eat out and always stay in the cheapest (largest) dorm rooms available, you can get by with less (~50/day). That's a pretty big range there, but it should give you a bit of an idea.
