Backpacking for not quite grey nomad

Backpacking in Australia with $20k in savings.
Suppose I throw caution to the wind and runaway from everything, what do I, a relatively inexperienced traveller need to know?

I'm Australian so no language / cultural difficulties, 45, female with no ties. What do I need to know/own in order to be itinerant for a year?
What should I pack? How do I save photos if I don't take a laptop with? What should I be aware of? Anything you can think of (eg do a barriers course before leaving, always carry a baseball bat, never sleep in a garbage bin, whatever).
Bonus points for international backpacking tips.
