The best place to get an accurate answer is Centrelink. They have online calculators if you prefer not to call them.

Hi sweetum89, my name is Rahul and I work I work at the Australian Government Department of Human Services in a team that responds to enquiries about Centrelink on social media sites like this one.
As you mentioned, earning an income can affect your Centrelink payments. If you or your partner start to earn income, you'll need to declare this to us each fortnight (and you may be able to do this online!).
How much you can earn before your payments are affected depends on the type of payment you receive and a range of other factors, like the number of children you have. Here's a link to a table that outlines how the income test affects each Centrelink payment so you can look at the information relevant to you:
You can also use the Online Estimators to see how income may affect your payment:http://www.humanservices.gov.au/estimators
Hope that helps.
