Question Visitors visa

I am applying for a visa to visit Australia for turism (form 48R)
They ask for evidence of funds, but donīt specify how much they expect.
If I want to be there for a month or less, what should be the amount of fund suggested?.

It'll depend on what sort of accommodation you're going to use.
For instance, two/three star hotels you'll pay $70-100/n for but if you're younger and/or are happy to use share rooms in travellers hostels, you can probably budget on about $35/n, some cheaper.
Food, you could get buy on $20-30/d, even less with some self preparation in hostel kitchens.

And then alcohol/entertainment/transport will depend on what your plans are.

So for bare essentials you're looking at ~$400/w and then say double it for extras and you'd be about right.
If you have a banking account with credit card facility you can always use whatever your limit is as proof of funds available.

If planning on hostels, have a look at BUG - the Backpackers' Ultimate guide to budget travel in Australia and YHA Australia and if you have some sort of a plan formulated in case you're asked by immigration on arrival, you should have no difficulties.

$1000 for a month is not going to allow you to cover much more than cheapest accommodation and basic eating.

If you were questioned by immigration, they would want to be clear on how you planned to get by on that ammount and just what your plans were to see Australia for you would have little spare for transport and any venues admittance fees.
