You are able to sign up for a TFN from the Australian Taxation Office once you reach Australia and have a permanent address. TFN is required if you are working or have interest bearing accounts to avoid hefty taxes.
After receiving a TFN, update it with your bank to avoid the charges. Do note that you will need a student visa before applying for the TFN.
