Iain,
If you only have 'March', get straight to Oz as quickly as possible and explore. A month is nowhere near enough time!
You need ETAs (Electronic Travel Authority). These are an electronic visa basically, which you can pay for online (about £20).
Insurance - yes, get some!
You will have to stop off for at least a change of planes or refuel, in Singapore or Bangkok. Either of these would make a nice 2-3 day stop.
Shop around for flights, you shouldn't be paying much more than 500-550 now to Sydney.

Iain

You'll still be able to get a working holiday visa on-line from the Australian Immigration website. http://www.immi.gov.au/e_visa/index.htm

Mine was processed within hours of me applying. I think I was lucky though. It shouldn' take any longer than a couple of days.
