As long as you leave yourself £3.5k to get into Australia you'll be fine :).
It all depends how flash you want to live out there, you can sleep in a comfortable hostel for as little as $20 in Thailand & with food & drink costing like $2-3 I imagine a few grand should be able to last anybody up to (and maybe longer) 6 months. Plus Cambodia and Vietnam is even cheaper than Thailand too!
