Have you thought about working in hostels as you travel. From my experience so far, most hostels are always looking for help. Usually 4 or 5 hours work per day will get you accomodation and meals. You could try catching rides with fellow travellers, usually pitch in for fuel, which is less than a bus ticket. Get out of Sydney, the city is a leach for money!
I know for a fact, the Halse Lodge and Koala Backpackers in Noosa, on the Sunshine Coast, are always looking for help.
let me know when you make it to the Gold Coast area, i'll be your tour guide, for free!
Best Travels

If you fancy heading to Melb pm me and i can put you in touch with some work - its pretty casual, walk in and if your crop at it - you'll walk out in 2 days - thats the max the boss is prepared to let you have a try (easy money basically). If you can hack it, youll make a good few dollars.
