I'm going to Adelaide on a permanent visa. One option is to transfer my funds to a commonwealth bank before i go. Will the money be considered as 'income' and taxed when i'm in australia.

No transfer of accounts wont be taxed but the transfer is very expensive. Banks can charge 6-10%. You can opt for a cheaper option. Contact MoveSouq.com I think they are doing a deal right now for banking.

Exchange4free does transfers cheaper than the banks, they can do the transfer into Common Wealth. :) They are very good.
