I am going to Australia for a few weeks and have access to a bike I will be riding around on. I have a garmin 800 but won't have a map for the area. Will it still track distance times and heartrates without a map?

Yes.
It's likely to take a while to lock onto the GPS satellites visible from Oz, but once it does it'll be fine.

The free OSM maps have served me very well in the UK, Germany and Austria. Not sure there is a need to buy maps for most countries.
