Is a ticket home required?

I'm leaving for Australia next week from Thailand, I have my tourist visa & will be staying with friends. What I don't have yet is my return ticket home to the US. Am I going to have any problems (with the airlines or AU immigration, or - ?) because I'm not yet ticketed?

Last night I decided to be bold and finally applied for a Work and Holiday Visa (Subclass 462). I woke up and found the visa approval email in my inbox. Talk about fast! Excellent... so now what? How do I pause my established life and go on an adventure? How do I let people know, especially at work?
