Hey guys I'm going to Oz in Sep on a WHV but I was just wondering how much money is sufficient enough to take with you to last over the first few months untill I find work? Any advice would be appreciated!! Thanks :)

AUD $5000 (~GBP 3000) is the minimum you're required to have on a WHV. That'll last you about two months (sleeping in dorm rooms, cooking your own food, taking public transport to a next destination about once a week), so serves as a decent baseline. More is obviously better, and allows you to do more activities, go out every so often, etc. There's really not an ideal amount, but if you can, I'd personally try for at least double that.
