Depends on how much of an alcoholic you are, but I'd estimate $50US-$60US a day would let you have some fun, drink a little without going over the top like a lot of British and Irish people love to do, and sometimes do some small tour that a hostel offers. Often unless you are a real alcoholic, you wouldn't spend as much as that a day, but on other days like if you did some tours,scuba diving etc out on the Great Barrier Reef, you would spend considerably more than that.

Yip depends on what trips you will be doing, some are more expensive then others and you are probley a sauce monkey but you can get good deals in some of the bars so yeah about $50 a day should keep you sane :)
