You should consider an i5 8400 if you are able to pick one up between now and christmas time...the cheaper motherboard options should be out by then (hopefully) and the i5 is pretty similar in price to the ryzen 5 and does quite a bit better in gaming.  Once they release the H series or B series for the current socket of 300 generation motherboards then they would probably be priced around $100 for a motherboard which isn't bad at all.  It would actually bring your total price to roughly AU$ 440 - $280 for i5, $100 for a decent motherboard, $60 for your hard drive.

I'd say get a cheaper case and power supply, I'm currently running a 970 and a R5 1400 with 430W power supply. I'd also say get the cheapest GTX 1060 you can find, as it will probably cheaper than the 970.

Is it a good combo, I already picked up a Asus 970 from my cousin for $50 aud so about $35 American?

that's a steal for a 970.  I'd still say to get an i5 over a ryzen 3/5 if stock allows.  You don't need a good cpu cooler because you can't OC the i5 and it stays really cool at all times.

You can overclock ryzens quite far anyways without upgrading a cooler. They dont run very hot as far as ive experienced. most stop at an 4 ghz anyway. Seeing as max temps is 95*c you can go quite far on stock cooler.

You don't want to go anywhere near that temp with a stock cooler though...anything above 60C is going to give you quite loud fan noises.
