Unless things have changed, I don't think you can extend the visa in Indo, you need to leave the country. As for cost: 3500AU=$3250 USD. That's about $28/day. That's very do-able in Bali and the other islands. But travel costs and surf camps(G-Land) will take big bite, not to mention beer. As I said, Do-able, but you'll have watch every penny and have something arranged back home if you get in a bind(injured, robbed, ect)
