1If you get caught working on a tourist visa, you will be deported and have a period where you cant enter Australia. You wont be able to get a tax number on a tourist visa.
You dont say what passport you travel on or what qualifications you have so no one can advise you on any legitimate work prospects.

2yes, you can extend the tourist visa, although it is cheaper to buy a longer visa before you enter Australia.
no, you cannot work on a tourist visa. Who are you that you think that the rules don't apply to you?
with your poor English I wouldn't hold out much hope anyway.

3NO, you cannot work on a tourist visa. It is for TOURISTS. If you wish to work you need a Working Holiday Visa at least, or some other form of work visa, depending on what passport you hold and whether you are eligible for one. Not knowing what kind of visa you need hardly makes you eligible to work in the tourism industry.

9You were wrong about the troll geoff. legitimate question, no need to attack the poor bloke.
Nowisgood, if funds are short and you want to stay longer, try Wwoofing and Helpex. technically you shouldn't do them do on a tourist visa, but the immigration department turn a blind eye to it.
With both of them you work a few hours a day for accommodation and food.

10If you arrive at immigration without a working visa and tell them you will work in Australia, expect to be on the next flight out

11and further to that -
If you arrive at immigration without proof of enough funds to support yourself for your three month visit, you may also find yourself on the first flight out as immigration officials may suspect that you will try to work. You don't need to bring cash with you - just proof that you have access to funds.

12of course, I have some funds, Cash, ATM, credit card, Idecided that I won't work in OZ, How strict is OZ immigration, what's the chance of me being rejected to enter the country / I have had tourist visa already, if it's that hard, I won't push my luck, I may as well skip OZ and fly to NZ

13I hate to burst your bubble but NZ is no pushover when it comes to Immigration. As for being rejected, people are profiled when they're coming through Immigration into NZ and if they think theres a possibility you dont have sufficient funds or may not stick to the conditions of your visa, then you may have some explaining to do.
Out of interest, what passport are you travelling on? Some countries are a higher risk than others.
