Not sure about your particular case, but if you plan to move most or all of your assets this might add up to a fair chunk of change (if you have savings, pensions, car, house equity, ...) So things like tiny movements in the exchange rate, and any tax considerations, will all hurt you quite a bit.

in other words, (a) don't even think of carrying that much cash, (b) get some professional advice. It's free (they want your business :-)

Im not sure what you mean. Are you talking about transferring your assets or just getting a plane ticket?

No, ypu do not need to already have a bank account in Australia and you can enter with up to A$10,000 in cash without declaring it or more as long as you declare it.
There may also be regulations for where you leave from too and you should check those as well.

Alternately it is relatively easy to open a bank account before you travel, most banks having provision for doing that, ANZ being one - ANZ - Travel and foreign exchange - Foreign Currency Rates & Currency Converter
That way you can deposit money rather than carry it.

It is also relatively easy to do transfers of money internationally if your bank has the facility and so if before you leave you check with your bank and if applicable get your Banks International Banking Number, IBN or Swift Code as some may still refer to it as, when you are in Australia, you can ask the bank here to initiate a transfer or with some banks you can do it online yourself with having the IBN and your account number, branch number etc.
