Question Work/Holiday Visa--need someone with experience

Just want to know what, if anything, I will be asked when going through customs/immigration. Are they likely to ask for the things mentioned in the online application (i.e. bank statements and insurance?) Or will I just breeze on through?

I was not asked for anything. In fact they didn't even speak to me when I arrived in Australia. although I did have all of the information just incase.

What shwany states seems to be about what happens with all WHV holders from all reports and I've even seen people reporting they arrive with a lot less money than is indicated they should have.
If you get a friendly Immi person, you might get lucky with an " enjoy your time in Australia "

whether or not someone is questioned seems to be random to me, but i doubt that you'd be asked something as specific as bank statements or proof of insurance.

once when entering Australia on an ETA i was asked about my reason for coming, but when entering another time on an ETA i wasn't asked anything. when i recently entered on a Work and Holiday Visa i was welcomed with a smile.
