1You are aware its illegal, and if you are broke will probably be stopped at the border and sent back to Malaysia.

2If he wants to stay, legally if not stopped can stay for 3 months.
But in this and his other post, if this is for real, does give immi a tip. And if Aust Immi DO keep track of posts on here for real.
Who knows though if this is his true plan, ie to fly into Perth on that day.
Perth is not a very big airport and they can really pick you up.
The airline check in staff will have s field day IF THIS IS KOSHER.
OP seems either Muslim Indian, or possibly from the Indian subcontinent. Does not seem Malay Muslim.

3With very little money, unless you are only staying for a very short period of time (ie days, not weeks) and with no set plans, the chances of your being allowed to stay in Australia would be minimal.

Not nice when you read this.
I think there were only 4/5 immi counters for incoming pax into Perth.
No where to pass without too much attention.

6LOL! yeah I'm stupid but in next 2 days will arrive in Perth and thank god already got a ticket for Auckland though with Jetstar, but it's in Feb, and its from Melbourne. LOL.
Now, got a few cash in hand around A$400, and although I guess will keep on my economical need survived, still am looking and keep on finding so called illegal-non-criminal work there. Please, which me luck.
Buy the way, is there Perth or Australia, is dangerous for Indian? Well, I better b prepared for those kind of racist thingy.
@KoalasRules I'll stay for a long term I guess.
@daycat you're such a funny guy.
Thanks for the tips and sarcastic all. See you around Perth then.

7Dangerous for Indian?
Ok, so thats your nationality, or are you Malaysian Citizen?
I am a former Malaysian Chinese, but have changed citizenship.
Australia is very open to all nationalities, but if you dig deep, you will see that Aust is quite the same as Malaysia, not as bad.
Over there, unless you are a Malay Muslim, you are on the outer.
Here, if you look Asian, you can also face a bit of flak. But it all depends on where you are. Some capital cities, people leave you alone in the CBD, in some capital cities, there are yobbos boofs, who will take the opportunity to belittle people who look different.
Not being a funny guy, 27 years here in Aust, I am telling it to you as an Asian guy, who does not drive, so catch public transport.
In Perth, its not bad, Melbourne it can be a bit bad for Indians, as in Sydney, but still, better than in Malaysia!
A few weeks ago, on a bus in Melbourne, not in the city centre though, it was in the suburbs, that a few males were harassing a French girl for singing in French.
The person or the other, even threw a rock or brick at a bus they just got off from, near where the French girl was sitting.
I personally have gotten into fights, but I did not start it, with Aussies.
I have been hit in the head, I have also caused a permanent scar on the person.
PS> you cannot stay long term, 3 months, is the most you can legally stay on an ETA. Legally, after 3 months, you have to go out. You can come back after you are out, but each time you come back, they will ask more and more questions. Illegally, you can stay for years!!!..., they (the police (if you don't commit any crimes), never ask for ID...
But to do a lot lf jobs, you need a police clearance check.
A lot of places also only pay by bank transfer, some places (few) still pay by cash.
If you make it, do come back and tell me I was wrong in all my advices, ok...???!!!???!!!
