People who know DSLR cameras, I need assistance!

I am terrible at photography, but I really enjoy it, and since I am going on holiday soon, I want to buy a new camera. I don't like the quality of point and shoot cameras, so I would like to make a bit more of a substantial investment. Any advice on what type of (SLR) camera I should buy?

My budget is flexible, but I would prefer under $1000. And I live in Australia, so if other goods are anything to go by, that gets me a lot less than it would in the US/anywhere else. So, with that in mind, what would you recommend? If you can ignore the eye-searing yellow of this website, these are likely the camera/price range options available to me: link.

Thank you hivemind!
