You don't mention your citizenship, however here are the options available from the DIAC (Australian immigration) website. This gives you information on the visas, how to apply, what is required etc. You can probably apply online.

What kind of place do you want to live in? Some people stay pretty much only in hostels, others rent flats with other people, or rent a room in a house/flat.

Youth hostels in Sydney and Melbourne often have boards for job and accommodation ads.

I just moved to Melbourne this week under the Working Holiday Visa Subclass 462. It is a simple process as long as you have all of your documentation in order and no criminal record. I'm fortunate to have a place to stay while here but I've found a few websites helpful to find lodging and work.

best of luck traveling!
