i'm still on my self-enforced hiatus but i couldn't not reply to this thread (actually, i'm so weak-willed i had to get my bf to change my password & he just had to log me in )
anyways - i have dual citizenship...well, i don't actually think of it like that, i just have two passports
i got my british passport before i went over to the uk to live & work for a couple of years. i think you will still have time to get it - your application is assessed by the british high commission in canberra from memory - i'm sure mine was sent back pretty quickly.
having the uk passport is good for lots of reasons. if you're just holidaying then the biggest plus is a super fast queue at immigration - they barely look at your passport & there are no questions asked. plus you leave & enter australia on your australian passport. too easy.
travelling around the EU is the same - they barely check it & queues move really quickly.
if you ever plan to live or work in the UK then it's a great thing to have because you're not limited to what jobs you can do (whereas on a working visa you're not meant to work in your chosen field) or how long you can stay.

I lived and worked in Scotland for 2 years on a working holiday visa (was one of the lucky few who got the 2 year visa!) and wasn't ready to come home!! I wish I could get dual citizenship!! And yes, the ease in the airports are worth any amount of money!!!
Go for it!!
