Do you need to have any savings when your applying as I've just started!

No...WHV rules dictate that you need the funds available to you once you enter Australia.

However, there are no known cases (on Travellerspoint) of anyone being stopped and asked to prove this.

I remember being approached by a border guard whilst waiting at the baggage carousel after arriving in Sydney. He asked me (very politely) why I had come to australia.

I explained and started scrambling desperately for bank statements, credit cards etc but before finding any of the relevant documents he replied simply 'ok enjoy your stay' and walked off..
