Default money

http://www.immi.gov.au/living-in-aus...-you-leave.htm

i read this page, and it says that: The country you leave may limit the cash you take out. You must also declare large sums of overseas currency at customs when you arrive.

what does this means? do i have to show any money/proof of funds, just like canadian immigration? and how much?

It is usually amounts of $10000+, but they maybe interested in any large sums you happen to be carrying.
Anyway, why take the risk and carry large sums of money on your person?

No, you have to declare if you are carrying more than $10k in physical hard cash on your person. If your not then you don't have to declare anything. Its to monitor people bringing in large dubious amounts of cash is all. Your fine carrying cards, cheques, whatever. Its just cash they are interested in.

Other than that, immigration and customs don't want to know anything at all about your finances on arrival.
