If you're good there's tons of work about.
However, I'd recommend trying to work in a studio for the first few months at least. That way you can get the lie of the land, make some good supplier contacts and familiarise yourself with any differences between working in the UK and in Aus (even just differences in terminology can be confusing at first).
Then, once you've found your feet, go out on your own if you think that it's for you.

Very nice, although I did manage to break it by moving my browser window size around.
Especially love the logo dipping behind the foreground of the opening illustration.
Speaking of which, who did the illustrations?

Find your niche, but that niche can be a combination of different skills. For instance, I design for print, illustrate and can model in 3D. That skill set helps me stand apart from others and makes my services more memorable.
So, learn the basics, and from there go towards what you're interested in.
