£8,000 is roughly AUD $15,000. At an average daily budget of AUD $75/day (a good estimate for most backpackers, living a lifestyle as you describe), that should last you about 200 days (nearly 7 months). Not enough for the entire year, but way more than most backpackers bring, and should give you a very respectable buffer until you find work.

(Might I ask, btw, why you break off your sentences as you do? It's understandable, but a bit disconcerting to read, and might be a barrier to responding for people for whom English isn't their native language.)
