How much cash to bring to Australia

Hello

While travelling to Australia for First entry, how much cash can I bring to Australia. I will have wife and two kids (5 and 7) travelling with me. We plan on staying and settling in right away, not activate and return at a later date. So how much amount can we as a family bring as personal allowance or use? My visa subclass is 176 which already states that I am obliged to bring 20k, however, is it at the time of first entry or transferred later?

Also can we declare further amounts which will be transferred to my bank account at the airport? Is there any advantage for that?
