Hi Kaz.....WELCOME to the forum...

Best advice is to purchase the Camps Australia Wide publication which gives many free and low cost campsites Australia wide.....You can buy it online This is considered the Travelers bible.

I also suggest that you spend some time having a look around this forum as the question you have asked has been asked lots of great info is available here for anyone prepared to do the research.

Can't advise you on what to purchase camper wise but suggest you check out the possibility Hiring one rather than buying. Reason being that you will be covered by insurance, breakdown assistance, registration etc.

You also do not indicate how long you intend on traveling in Oz....what time of year you intend to visit etc as this might make quite a difference to any advice you are given.

Howdy Kaz.....and where you are flying into......Vehicles in this country alter by the mile depending what state you buy in.......

Hi and welcome.
My mum met some canadians who came over to work for a year or so and they loved to camp. They bought a cheap wagon and tent to travel round with. You may find this a cheaper alternative than a camper and probably easier to find. As Gypsylady suggested, hiring might also be an alternative.

Good luck with your research.
