A point to remember when renting in Australia is that Rental Prices are always quoted as Weekly NOT monthly as in other countries around the world.
So a quick calculation
Weekly Price x 52 ÷ 12 = Monthly Price

MOBILE INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDERS

There are many Service providers in Australia with the main carrier being Telstra closely followed by Optus.
You can check which service provider or package suits you best with a site like This
I personally can recommend Boost (Please note I am not affiliated in any with Boost.au) They use the Telstra network so you get good coverage in Australia and they have some reasonable mobile packages.

TRAVELLING BETWEEN CITIES IN AUSTRALIA

Again using internet search engines often give you the best prices for flights between Australian Cities. You can sometimes pick up a very cheap flight particularly if you book a month or two in advance.
