You'd be surprised that Australia is pretty easy to live in money wise, I mean nowhere in comparison to Asia but compared to Europe/U.K.

5000 pounds saved as well as working and you'll be laughing.
Aussies that travel through Europe take considerably less than that and get by for a few months without earning even a little bit of income.

hey guys i'm in oz at the moment for a working holiday! i came over in November and i took the minimum amount of 2 grand lol....bad choice!! i spent it all within the first month and had nothing to show for it, except nights i'll never remember haha, luckily my boyfriend got here in december and i was saved!!

i must say though it was pretty hard for us to find work, especially with the current economic climate. so the more money you have saved the better :) oh and you dont actually need to do 3 months fruit picking for your 2nd year visa, i'm sure there's some loop hole to do with agricultural work that means 3 construction work also makes you eligible for it :) of course you could always just pay a farmer lol!!

It's now called "specified work" rather than "seasonal work" that you have to do, which also needs to be done within a regional postcode. Links from immigration website:
