Would be unable to give many suggestions on cheap flights if we don't know where you're flying from (destination city can also be useful, but presumably this would be Sydney if you go ahead with doing OzIntro). Also whether you're intending on flying straight through, or having a stopover anywhere.

I've not heard of anyone on a WHV being asked to prove their funds on arrival, however it's possible. Especially with the current climate I would recommend taking as much as you can, I don't know if jobs can be found quite as quickly as they could before. I've certainly heard that here in Melbourne backpackers aren't having such a good time with that as a year ago.

With flights, check around with places such as STA Travel, Austravel, even look at Flight Centre (usually expensive) and the websites of airlines as deals do come up.
