apart from the things you already mention make sure you have at least a few thousand dollars available to you. If you don't you will not have much fun and if you tell the truth (if you didn't have at least $3000AUD) then you might get turned back at the border. The border security guys seem to believe that people can not live on $50 a day if they really make an effort to, they seem to believe you need $150+ a day. You also want to have a rough idea of an itinerary so if they question you, you have something to tell them.
